Taylor Henrich flies to bronze at ski jumping World Cup finale
Calgarian claims 2nd World Cup medal of season
Calgary's Taylor Henrich won her second World Cup medal of the season Friday with a third-place finish in the women's ski jumping season finale in Norway, Oslo.
The 20-year-old, who finished 13th at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, joined Sara Takanashi of Japan and American Sarah Hendrickson on the podium.
In January, Henrich became the first Canadian woman to win a World Cup ski jumping medal when she landed third in Oberstdorf, Germany.
In February, Henrich won the qualifying round at a World Cup competition in Falun, Sweden before finishing just off the podium in the final round.
Japan's Takanashi won the last women's ski jump World Cup event of the season but it wasn't enough to prevent Daniela Iraschko-Stolz of Austria from clinching the overall title.
Iraschko-Stolz finished fifth, which was enough to hold off her Japanese rival by 34 points in the season-long standings with 1,007 points to 973.
Takanashi jumped 128 and 127 metres on the large hill for 263.8 points, while Hendrickson of the United States was second on 257.1 points. Henrich was third with 250.4 points, and wound up 15th in the season standings.
It's Iraschko-Stolz's first crystal globe, with Takanashi having won the last two overall titles. The Austrian won five competitions this season, and Friday was only the second time she finished outside the top four.
