Demong 13th at World Championships

Steamboat's Fletcher finishes 40th

Bill Demong had the third-fastest 7.5K time despite soft snow and moved up seven places in the race to finish 13th in the Nordic combined sprint Friday at the 2007 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships behind Finnish star Hannu Manninen. Steamboat's Bryan Fletcher finished 40th. Johnny Spillane did not race after jumping to 30th place. Spillane has a sore shoulder. Eric Camerota was disqualified for a jumping suit violation.
