Known as a “Harry Potter look-alike”, Ammann was rocketed into stardom, but could not follow up his Olympic titles with other success until 2007, when he won the large hill event at the Sapporo World Championships, and placed second in the normal hill. In the World Cup circuit, he has won three competitions, and placed third in the 2006/2007 season.
