Synopsis
The 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics. Carrying the hopes of a nation, Japan’s was seeking its first ever gold medal in the Men’s Large Hill Team event. On the sidelines stood one man who harbored particularly strong emotions toward team ace, Masahiko Harada. That man was former Japan ski jumper, Jinya Nishikata.

In the previous Winter Olympic games at Lillehammer, Norway, Nishikata had appeared alongside Harada as a teammate. He had just made the team’s longest jump of 135 meters. Japan looked like it had the gold medal in the bag. But then Harada flubbed his jump. And they had to settle for second place, a silver medal. Vowing to erase that humiliation at the next winter games in Nagano four years later, Nishikata threw himself into training. But then he injured his back and was dropped from the team. His hopes crushed, Nishikata was, however, asked to participate in the Nagano games as a test jumper.

A test jumper’s job is check for any hazards on the hill prior to the event, and to make numerous jumps should it start to snow during the event to pack down the snow. Despite being resigned to a humiliating behind-the-scenes role, Nishikata gathered the other test jumpers, all with back stories of their own, and began preparing for the event.

And then it came. In the first round, Harada again made a poor showing. Team Japan fell to fourth place. But then a fierce blizzard blew in, stopping the action. If the event were to be called now, the first round results would stand.

Just then, the event judges called together all 25 of the test jumpers and said, “If you can all jump, we’ll resume the event.” Miraculously, Japan’s path to a gold medal lay open again, and in the hands of Nishikata and his 24 test jumpers.


1998年長野五輪。日本スキージャンプチームは国民の期待を一身に背負ってラージヒル団体で日本初の金メダルを狙っていた。そこに、エース原田のジャンプを特別の想いで見守る男がいた。元日本代表・西方仁也だ。前回大会・リレハンメル五輪で西方は原田とともに代表選手として出場。西方は日本代表最高飛距離135mを飛び、金メダル目前だったが、原田がジャンプを失敗。銀メダルに甘んじた。西方は4年後の長野五輪での雪辱を誓い練習に打ち込むが、腰の故障により代表を落選。悔しさに打ちひしがれる中、テストジャンパーとして長野五輪に参加して欲しいと依頼される。テストジャンパーとは、競技前にジャンプ台に危険がないかを確かめ、競技中に雪が降った際には何度も飛んでジャンプ台の雪を踏み固めるジャンパーのこと。西方は裏方に甘んじる屈辱を感じながらも、様々な思いを抱えて集まっていたテストジャンパーたちと準備に取り掛かる。
そして、五輪本番。団体戦の1本目のジャンプで、またしても原田が失敗。日本は4位に後退してしまう。しかも猛吹雪により競技が中断。このまま競技が終れば、1本目のジャンプの結果のみで順位が決定してしまう。そんな中、審判員たちの判断は、「テストジャンパー25人が全員無事に飛べたら競技再開する」というものに。奇しくも、日本の金メダルへの道は、西方率いる25人のテストジャンパーたちへ託されたのだった…!
