SCHONACH-SCHOENWALD, Germany (AP) — Anette Sagen of Norway set a new hill record to win a women's ski jump event and claim her first World Cup victory on Sunday.
The 27-year-old Sagen soared to a Schonach record of 98 meters with her first jump and then 94 to earn 224.9 points. Austria's Daniela Iraschko was second with 224.3 after jumps of 96 and 92.5 meters, while Coline Mattel of France finished third on 223.4.
Japan's Sara Takanashi, who claimed her third World Cup win Saturday, could only manage fourth place after a disappointing first jump of 91.5 meters. The 16-year-old recovered with a second jump of 95.5 for 221.3 points.
Takanashi maintained her standings lead after six events with 490 points, 100 ahead of Iraschko, while Mattel was third on 348.
