Johan Erikson

Johan Erikson (born 20 January 1985) is a Swedish ski jumper who represents Holmens IF. He had his best season in 2003/2004, when he finished the season with many top-20 finishes, including a 16th at Liberec in 2004.

Erikson has a characteristic style whereby he travels very quickly, but does not fly especially far. However, he is the Swede with the second-furthest distance of all time, with his 201 metres at Planica in 2007, after Isak Grimholm.

Famous quotes containing the word erikson:

    Every society consists of men in the process of developing from children into parents. To assure continuity of tradition, society must early prepare for parenthood in its children; and it must take care of the unavoidable remnants of infantility in its adults. This is a large order, especially since a society needs many beings who can follow, a few who can lead, and some who can do both, alternately or in different areas of life.
    —Erik H. Erikson (1904–1994)
