The 19-year-old Takanashi jumped 106 meters to score 143.4 points before the second round was canceled due to strong winds.

Austria's Daniela Iraschko-Stolz, the Sochi Olympic silver medalist and last season's overall World Cup champion, was second with 127.2 points after a 94.5-meter jump.

Maja Vtic of Slovenia jumped 96 meters for third with 125.3 points.

Takanashi leads the overall World Cup standings with 580 points, 181 ahead of Iraschko-Stolz.
