Weather cancels ski jump qualifying

PARK CITY, Utah -- Spectators, 14,000 strong, endured shuttle bus delays, shivered through security lines, then walked one mile uphill in driving snow Friday morning only to see the first competitive event cancelled at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Ski jump qualifications on the short hill that were to begin in early morning went through a series of delays because of a snowstorm and high winds at Utah Olympic Park. By late morning, officials called things off when wind conditions did not improve.
