Ski Jumping: Tande scores double whammy in Innsbruck

Norwegian ski jumper Daniel Andre Tande won a shortened third stop of the prestigious Four Hills Tournament on Wednesday in Innsbruck for his second straight victory.

Tande, who also won Sunday’s event in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, scored 125.7 points with a leap of 128.5 meters.

Changing winds interrupted the competition and forced organizers to cancel the final round of jumping.

That left Tande’s compatriot Robert Johansson in second place for a Norwegian one-two while Russia’s Evgeniy Klimov took third.

Olympic champion Kamil Stoch of Poland was fourth on the day and couldn’t prevent Tande from overtaking him at the summit of the classification with just the Bischofshofen stop left to contest on January 6.
