Czech Janda nabs opening ski jumping victory in Finland{mosimage}KUUSAMO, Finland — World Championships bronze medalist Jakub Janda of the Czech Republic jumped 140.5 meters to win the weather-delayed, one-round large hill ski jumping meet Saturday that opened the World Cup jumping schedule in light snow. Alan Alborn, the lone U.S. skier in the meet, was 45th.

Rain and wet snow Friday night forced organizers of the Nordic Opening weekend to delay the competition until Saturday and make it a one-round event. The normally scheduled HS142 meet set for Saturday night was to be held later as a traditional two-round competition.
