Koudelka wins ski jump World Cup event

LILLEHAMMER, Norway (AP) Roman Koudelka won his second ski jump World Cup ski jump of the season in Lillehammer on Sunday, giving him the lead in the overall standings.

The Czech, who began the season with victory at Klingenthal in Germany, jumped 140 meters for 153.9 points to finish ahead of Slovenia's Peter Prevc in a competition delayed by strong winds and limited to one round.

Austria's Michael Hayboeck finished third for the second day in a row.

Germany's Severin Freund finished fourth, followed by Switzerland's Simon Ammann, who failed to qualify on Saturday.

The day's longest jump of 143 meters was by Germany's Markus Eisenbichler, but he only received 143.7 points to finish eighth.

Koudelka leads the overall standings with 290 points, followed by Ammann with 281. Norway's Anders Fannemel is third with 250.
