Manninen wins in Finland at Nordic World Cup event


— Finland’s Hannu Manninen won on his home soil Saturday in Lahti, Finland, beating Austria’s Felix Gottwald and French skier Jason Lamy Chappuis at a Nordic World Cup event.

U.S. Olympic medalists Johnny Spillane, Todd Lodwick, Billy Demong and Brett Camerota took the week off.

Nick Hendrickson was the top American in 40th. Taylor Fletcher was 41st, Bryan Fletcher was 43rd and Alex Miller was 45th.

Because of strong winds, Saturday’s jumping portion was canceled and Thursday’s provisional jump was used.
