Ski jumping Japan’s Takanashi lifts 7th World Cup

AFP, Japan :
Japan’s Olympic gold medal hope Sara Takanashi soared to her seventh ski jumping World Cup victory of the season Saturday, despite sustaining a pratfall after a giant leap.

She lost points for style because of the fall, but made up the marks with her distance.
