(AP) Anna Fenninger of Austria turns in the fastest time in a women's Olympic downhill training run that had to be halted so workers could alter a harrowing jump near the finish.

Fenninger finished the tricky course in 1 minute, 41.73 seconds on Thursday, 0.21 seconds ahead of Fraenzi Aufdenblatten of Switzerland. American Julia Mancuso was third.

The race was stopped after the first three racers were getting too much air on a jump. After an hour delay, the three racers were given the option of running the course again, with only American Laurenne Ross taking the option.

Daniela Merighetti of Italy skipped the re-run after hurting both knees when she landed. She will have her left knee examined.

Her teammate Verena Stuffer also elected not to race again.
