World champion American Sarah Hendrickson won the Trondheim World Cup ski-jumping event on Friday ahead of Japanese teenager Sara Takanashi.

It was the American's third win of the season as she scored 283 points to Takanashi's 274.9, with Austria's Jacqueline Seifriedsberger third on 271.2.

It was the same podium finish as at the Worlds in Val di Fiemme last month.

Although she missed out on victory in the penultimate World Cup event, Takanashi was already assured of winning the event's Crystal Globe as she held an unassailable lead.
