PARK CITY — Women ski jumpers competed on the Olympic stage for the first time ever.
In Park City, friends, family and fans of women's ski jumping gathered at Red Rock Junction to watch the live broadcast of the event and to cheer on Americans Sarah Hendrickson, Jessica Jerome and Lindsey Van.
However, the three women didn't medal.
The gold went to Carina Vogt of Germany. Daniela Iraschko-Stolz of Austria took silver and Coline Mattell of France took bronze.
Hendrickson, the 19-year-old defending world champion from Park City, finished 21st of 30 starters.
Jerome finished 10th and former world champion Van 15th.
In 2011, the International Olympic Committee agreed to allow the women to compete at Sochi — 90 years after men did at the inaugural Winter Games in 1924, the Associated Press reported.
