QUOTES Sarah Hendrickson I was a little bit stressed after yesterday's not so good jumps, but I knew it was just because of the jetlag. Everybody has a bad day once in a while. The wind was all over the place and it was hard to have a really fair competition, but on the technical side of things I'm very happy with my jumps today.
