Poland's Jan Ziobro wins ski jump World Cup event

ENGELBERG, Switzerland (AP) — Jan Ziobro of Poland had the longest jump in both rounds to get his first career victory on the ski jump World Cup on Saturday.

Ziobro's teammate Kamil Stoch was runner-up on the large hill to take the lead in the overall standings from Gregor Schlierenzauer of Austria, who placed 27th. The 22-year-old Ziobro leaped 134 and 141 meters for a combined total of 275.4 points, and a winning margin of 6.2 points.

Stoch recorded jumps of 129 and 137.5 meters, to edge Anders Bardal of Norway into third. Bardal had longer jumps, including 140 meters in the second round, but scored fewer style marks from the judges. He is also third in the standings.

Swiss favorite Simon Ammann, the defending Olympic champion, placed 11th Saturday and is sixth overall.
