The Ladies' World Cup final is also taking place in Planica this winter. Before the season ends with the final individual competition on Saturday, the official training was held on the new large hill on Friday.

The best jump in the first training round was once again shown by Sara Takanashi of Japan, who already secured this season's overall World Cup title some time ago, with 126.5 m. She was followed by local hero Maja Vtic with 124 m and Irina Avvakumova of Russia with 118.5 m.

The training then had to be canceled after only six of 30 jumpers in the second round due to the strong wind.

Italian Manuela Malsiner fell in her second jump. She dislocated her shoulder and suffered bruises.

The 2013/14 World Cup season ends for the ladies with the competition in Planica on Saturday at 9:00 am CET.
