CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As excitement builds for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, there a lot excitement among the female ski jumping competitors.
Since 1924, women ski jumpers have not been allowed to participate in the Winter Games. But that is all about to change.
Ski jumping has always been one of the most thrilling extreme sports, but until now women have never been allowed to participate alongside their male counterparts at the highest level, despite having a long and rich history in the sport.
This morning on Larry's Look, two of the competitors sat down to talk to us about the event.
Jessica Jerome and Alissa Johnson shared the story of Women’s Ski Jumping USA and how drive and ambition are built with the power of the human spirit.
They’ll also shared their intense training schedule and how they make every workout count.
