It may not be a medal but it's a big feat for Wauconda's Kevin Bickner, who was the only American to make it to the final jump in the men's large hill ski jumping event Saturday.
Bickner and Cary's Michael Glasder, both from the prestigious Norge Ski Club in Fox River Grove, were the only two of four Americans to qualify for the final event.
Glasder's first jumped landed him in 46th place, but only the top 30 continued on to the medal round.
Bickner ended his first round in the 20th spot, where he remained for the medal event.
Norway's Robert Johansson led Friday's qualifying with 131.9 points after a leap of 135 meters at Alpensia Ski Jumping Center. He finished in third behind Poland's Kamil Stoch, in first and Germany's Andreas Wellinger in second.
