Biography

Michael Glasder got started in ski jumping because growing up, he lived across the street from a jump. When he was 5 years old, his parents took him to test it out. Because of the number of quota spots the U.S. men qualified at the 2010 Olympics, Glasder missed out on a spot. Again in 2014, Glasder wasn’t named to the Olympic squad. Since then, he’s competed at two world championships in 2015 and 2017. His best finish was 40th on the large hill, but he also bagged an 8th place and 11th place finishes in the 2017 team events.
