Hi all,

I am looking for some information about ski jumping for a problem that I am
writing for my Biomechanics class.

The information I need (for mens 90m jump):

take-off speed 24 m/s ?
take-off angle -4 degrees ? (not essential)
landing speed ?
landing angle ? (not essential)
vertical distance between take-off and landing ?
skier's mass ? (not essential)
skier's height ? (not essential)

Precise values for a medal winner at the Olympics would be great, but
approximate values will do.
