Strong winds in Harrachov

Qualification successfully took place on Friday with Jaka Hvala topping the pile of those not already automatically through with a score of 196.5.

However the trial round was cancelled a day later as wind speed picked up with the first competition in Harrachov unable to take place at its scheduled start time.

After various delays and jury meetings, the first event was cancelled an hour and a half after it was meant to begin with the wind to strong to allow ski flying.

The first of the two events in Harrachov will now take place on Sunday morning with the second following in the afternoon.
