American special jumper Nick Alexander soars through the air at Whistler Olympic Park on Saturday during the ski jumping medal event. Alexander, who qualified along with two other teammates for Saturday’s medal event, couldn’t match his training jump in the first official round and failed to make the final cut, which included the top 30 jumpers in the world.
