A Fourth Grader’s First Big Ski Jump

I heard about this viral video on the radio. What I thought I heard is that 9-year-old, 4th grader Zia, whose mother ski jumped 20 years ago has guided her daughter in the past to jump off of a 20-meter platform.

What an inspiration. And this was “so fun.”

I haven’t been able to confirm that this is her first 40-meter jump. All the stories describe this as Zia’s first ever ski jump. I will keep browsing…
