Lillehammer SJ: Ammann leads 1-2 Swiss finish


Simon Ammann led a 1-2 finish for Switzerland in a World Cup ski-jumping meet on Saturday to take the overall lead after two competitions.
LILLEHAMMER, Norway — Simon Ammann led a 1-2 finish for Switzerland in a World Cup ski-jumping meet on Saturday to take the overall lead after two competitions.
    Ammann, a former double Olympic champion, jumped 128.5 and 138 meters for 265.9 points on the Lysgardsbakken hill where the Olympic ski-jump events were held during the 1994 Winter Games.
    Andreas Kuttel, who held a narrow lead after the first round, finished second with 129.5 and 133.5 meters for 260.6, 5.3 points behind Ammann.
    Thomas Morgenstern was third with 258.0 points after jumps of 126.5 and 134.5 meters.
    Another Austrian, Gregor Schlierenzauer, broke the hill record with a 141-meter jump in the second round. But he missed the podium by 1.6 points after hitting only 120.5 meters in the first round.
    Norwegian rookie Anders Jacobsen, third in last week's opener, jumped 142 meters in the second round, but fell when he landed and lost style points and the hill record. He ended 10th.
    Defending World Cup champion Jakub Janda had another disappointing outing, finishing 23rd. The Czech was 56th in the opener last week.
    Ammann, runner-up in the opener in Finland that was shortened to one jump because of wind and heavy snow, tops the overall standings with 180 points.
    Finland’s Arttu Lappi, who managed only 21st in Lillehammer, is second (110 points), followed by Jacobsen (86) and Kuttel (80).
