Veteran ski jumper Hideharu Miyahira won the Yoshida Cup for his second title in as many days on Sunday following his victory in the season-opening meet.

Miyahira jumped 93 meters for 121.5 points in a competition shortened to one round of jumps after inclement weather canceled the second round at the K-90 Piyashiri hill in Hokkaido.

Yukio Sakano made a 92.5-meter jump to take second for the second straight day. Masahiko Harada, a 37-year-old veteran who was third on Saturday, finished seventh.
