Johnny Spillane Biography
Johnny Spillane was born November 24, 1980 and is an
American athlete who competes in
Nordic combined, a combination event consisting of ski jumping and cross
country skiing. Born in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Spillane began skiing at
the age of two and became interested in ski jumping when he witnessed it at a
venue near his house. His first attempt at ski jumping was at age 11, by 1998
he made the United States Olympic team in Nordic combined, although he did not
end up competing in any events. By 1999, he was competing for the United States
at World Ski Championship events and made a second appearance on the United
States Olympic team in 2002.
The following year, he won the first ever gold medal won by
an American at the World Ski Championships, placing first in the 7.5k sprint
event. Injuries sidelined him during the 2005 World Championships, so he was
unable to defend his title, and the following years saw disappointing finishes
for Spillane at a number of events including the 2006 Winter Olympics. However,
he again made the Olympic team for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver,
Canada. In the individual normal hill/10 km event at the Vancouver Winter
Olympic Games, Spillane won the silver medal after being passed near the finish
line by Jason Lamy-Chappuis, the gold medalist. The race set a number of
records. It was the first medal ever won by an American in the Nordic combined,
and only the third in any Nordic sport, and the .4 second difference between
Lamy-Chappuis and Spillane is the closest Nordic combined finish in Olympic history.
