Canada will have two men in the men's normal hill ski jumping competition after Mackenzie Boyd-Clowes and Dusty Korek qualified on Saturday at the RusSki Gorki Jumping Centre in Sochi.

Austria's Michael Hayboeck was tops in qualifying, leading the way with a jump of 101 metres and a score of 128.6.

Calgary's Boyd-Clowes was 21st in the qualifier, jumping 95m for a score of 113.4.

Korek, also of Calgary, was 28th, qualifying with a score of 107.4 after a jump of 92.5m.

Two Canadians didn't make the cut, with Matthew Rowley of Red Deer, Alta., was just one spot away from qualifying of the top 40 jumpers.

Calgary's Trevor Morrice was 47th.

Ten athletes, including Polish medal favourite Kamil Stotch, had already qualified for Sunday's event, which starts at 12:30 p.m. ET.
