Iraschko wins women's WCup ski jump event

HINZENBACH, Austria (AP) -- Daniela Iraschko of Austria won a World Cup ski jump for the first time after Saturday's final round was canceled because of strong wind.

With just three of the top-30 competitors left waiting for a second jump, organizers decided conditions were too dangerous. That meant the first-round results counted as final results.

World champion Iraschko jumped 96 meters and earned 123.3 points to edge Sarah Hendrickson of the U.S., who jumped 91.5 meters, by 0.7 points. Katja Pozun of Slovenia was third, 8.9 points behind Iraschko. Another American, Lindsey Van, was seventh.

Hendrickson has won four of six events this season and leads the World Cup standings.

Another competition on the same hill is scheduled for Sunday.
