PARK CITY — Annika Belshaw is a national champion three times over. She won USA Nordic’s U.S. Ski Jumping Championship on the HS100 normal hill at the Utah Olympic Park on Friday and then won the HS134 large hill Saturday morning.

Belshaw was the only woman to hit the 90-meter mark in the normal hill event Friday. Paired with an 86.5 meter jump, she earned solid scores from the judges and won with 214 points.

Nina Lussi was second, and Anna Hoffman and Steamboat’s Logan Sankey tied for third.



Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club member Annika Malacinski was fifth. Tess Arnone and Alexa Brabec, also from Steamboat, took 10th and 11th respectively.

Casey Larson, of Barrington, Illinois, was the top finisher for the men in both ski jumping events. He used a jump of 101.5 meters to earn 259.5 points on the normal hill, topping the podium alongside Andrew Urlaub in second and Steamboat’s Decker Dean in third. Erik Belshaw, of Steamboat, was fifth. Jasper Good took sixth, while Niklas Malacinski was eighth, Grant Andrews was ninth and Taylor Fletcher finished 10th.

In the large hill, Annika Malacinski took fourth, while Sankey finished sixth. Brabec and Arnone were 10th and 11th, respectively.

The men were led by Larson again, with Dean in second, Urlaub in third and Good in fourth.

Belshaw and Good were the top starters in the men’s 10-kilometer and women’s 5-kilometer race for the Nordic combined championships. Despite being a special jumper, Belshaw clung on to the lead, fending off Annika Malacinski to sweep the championships. Fletcher caught Good in the end of the men’s race and was crowned the men’s Nordic combined National Champion.
