(Park City-AP) -- World Cup ski jumping was cancelled today because of gusting winds throughout the morning.

Officials waited 21/2 hours before calling off the event on the K120 hill at Utah Olympic Park. The competition will not be rescheduled.

World Cup ski jumping director says the winds were dangerous for competition and there was no possibility of jumping today.

Today was supposed to be the second of consecutive ski jumps at the site of the Salt Lake City Olympics. Japan's Noriaki Kasai won yesterday's jump.
