LJUBNO, Slovenia (AP) Daniela Iraschko-Stolz of Austria and Sara Takanashi of Japan tied for the win Sunday in a women's ski jump event, meaning the two will fight for the overall World Cup title in the final competition of the season next month.

The two rivals both earned a total of 244.9 points to beat American Sarah Hendrickson by 1.1 point in the last warm-up for next week's world championships.

With one World Cup event remaining after the worlds, Iraschko-Stolz leads Takanashi by 89 points in the overall standings - and would have clinched the crystal globe with an outright victory in Ljubno.

The Austrian said ''it was a pretty cool competition today, we were all so close.''

Hendrickson earned her second straight podium after also being third in Saturday's event, which Takanashi won.
