Sochi Olympic silver medalist Daniela Iraschko-Stolz of Austria landed a huge opening jump in Sunday’s women’s World Cup event and held on for her second victory of the weekend as Japan’s two-time defending World Cup champion Sara Takanashi had to settle for 5th.

Takanashi jumped 90 and 90.5 meters to finish with 213.1 points, failing to reach the 95-meter K point on either effort. Her fifth-place result saw her fall into second place in the World Cup standings.
