HINTERZARTEN, Germany: Japanese ski jumping sensation Sara Takanashi made it two wins from two World Cup events on Saturday when she won in Hinterzarten.
The 17-year-old, who won the season opener in Lillehammer, Norway, a fortnight ago, recorded her 11th career victory with a total of 266.8 points.
Austria's Daniela Iraschko-Stolz was second (252.4) while Irina Avvakumova of Russia took third (247).
"I'm very happy that my jumps were good enough to win. I like the hill here a lot and I'm looking forward to tomorrow's competition," said the Japanese star.
Iraschko-Stolz said her performance was overshadowed by the fall suffered on Friday by teammate Jacqueline Seifriedsberger, who suffered ligament damage in the incident.
"Because of Jacqueline's injury I wasn't feeling that good today. Of course the second place is a good result for me. It was emotional because I also remembered my own injury last year," she said.
"Jacqueline was in a very good shape and had a good chance to win. It's a huge setback for our small team. We will now need a couple of days before we look toward Sochi (Olympics) again."
