Biography

Bryan Fletcher started out as a ski jumper as a young boy, which he did to take his mind off of his chemotherapy sessions. He was diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia (ALL) at age 4, but by age 8, the cancer had gone into remission. Eventually, he made his way into Nordic combined (which combines ski jumping with cross-country skiing) and his younger brother, Taylor, followed him into the sport.

While the older Fletcher was recovering from an ankle injury, the younger Fletcher was selected to participate at the 2010 Olympics. Bryan was still involved, though: He was chosen as a fore jumper to test the course readiness for the competitors. It sparked a “what if?” moment in him, and propelled him to compete at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, where the brothers were teammates. Bryan’s best individual finishes were 22nd on the large hill and 26th on the normal hill. He was sixth in the team event.

He has competed at the 2007, 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017 World Championships. More recently, he has started ccThrive, an organization that aims to get kids thriving after childhood cancer.
