Difficult weather conditions with strong wind and slight snowfall made in impossible to carry out the second competition in Kuusamo.

The jury already had to cancel the qualification this afternoon and so all 76 athletes were taking part in the competition at 5:00 pm CET.

But the conditions didn't get any better in the evening and so it was decided already shortly after the beginning of the first round that there would be no final round today. 

With freezing temperatures and the strong wind it remained difficult during the course of the round for everyone involved and numerous breaks were necessary. After about one and a half hours and 37 jumpers the jury then finally decided to cancel the competition.
