Yuki Ito earned her second straight World Cup win on Saturday, beating Sara Takanashi by 0.8 points for her third career win — all coming in an eight-day span on home soil.

Ito’s initial 100-meter jump was the day’s longest, while Takanashi opened with a 99.5-meter leap. Ito equaled Takanashi’s 94.5-meter second attempt and edged her compatriot 227.0 points to 226.2 at the K-100 Kuraray Zao Schanze.
