JILIN BEIDA LAKE, China — Current aerials world champion Steve Omischl of Canada took the lead on his first jump Sunday and won the second World Cup meet of the season. U.S. jumpers Ryan St. Onge and Jeret Peterson failed to make finals.
    Omischl had 227.77 points to hold off Belarussian Timafei Slivets, who had 219.46.
    “The guys have been jumping well,” said U.S. head coach Jeff Wintersteen, “but they just didn’t put it down today … just didn’t do it.”
