Ski jumps that launched Olympians come tumbling down

A demolition excavator pulls apart the spindly steel legs of the Little Chester ski jump in Duluth on August 18, 2014. The jump was built in 1969, and served as one of the training ramps for a generation of world class ski jumpers from Duluth. The city says it would have cost about $1 million to restore the jump and another, taller ramp nearby. (Dan Kraker / MPR News)
