Daniela Iraschko-Stolz of Austria dominated Sunday's women's ski jumping training sessions at the Sochi Olympics, proving her first-day performance was no fluke.

Perhaps as important, she's sending a message to 17-year-old gold medal favourite Sara Takanashi of Japan.

Iraschko-Stolz relegated Takanashi, who has 10 World Cup victories this season, to second place in two of three training jumps Saturday. She finished first in two training runs Sunday before deciding not to bother with the third.

Takanashi was first in that third session, after coming in second and third in the others. The first Olympic gold medal in women's ski jumping will be awarded Tuesday, ending a decade-long fight to get the sport into the Olympic Games.
