Kamil Stoch of Poland won the gold medal for the mens individual large hill ski jumping final round with a final score of 278. Cecil Cooper Jersey .7 on Saturday at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi Calgarys Mackenzie Boyd-Clowes finished with a total score of 237.9, good for 25th place.  Japans Noriaki Kasai claimed the silver medal by hitting a final score of 277.4. Peter Prevc of Slovenia won the bronze finishing with 274.8 points. Stoch, 26, became the third man in Olympic history to win both the normal hill and large hill events. Switzerlands Simon Ammann accomplished the feat in 2010 at the Vancouver Games. Ammann is well finished in 23rd in this event. Finlands Matti Nykanen first accomplished the double gold feat at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary.  The top 30 jumpers of the qualifying round moved onto the final, but neither of Boyd-Clowes teammates were able to join him. Trevor Morrice of Calgary finished in 42nd with a score of 103.4, jumping 121.5 metres. Matthew Rowley of Red Deer, Alta., was disqualified because his suit was too big, violating competition rules. The scores of the final jump were added to the previous round, making a two-jump total. Stoch, who won gold in the mens normal hill earlier in the Games and entered the event as the world number one. He led all competitors with a score of 143.4, jumping 139 metres, tied for longest in the round and had a second jump of 132.5 metres earning him 135.3 points in the finals. Another disappointing jump saw Austrias Gregor Schlierenzauer well back in 14th after qualifications with 124.6 points and finished in seventh with a final score of 255.2. Schlierenzauer holds the record for most World Cup victories (52), but only has two bronze medals to his name in the Olympics. He finished 11th on the normal hill. Rowleys not the biggest suit in the field Rowleys disqualification surprised Curtis Lyon, the high performance director for Canada Ski Jumping. "The suit was legal the last time we tested it," Lyon said, according to the CBCs Doug Gelevan. Loose suits can create lift, allowing athletes to fly farther. "He definitively doesnt have the biggest suit in the field," Lyon said. "Its not technically cheating in ski jumping, if you look around some of the guys suits are definitively baggier. Maybe they just know how to manipulate them better (in testing) the way they stand, the way they pull it up. "Its definitively a rule management issue. So maybe we have to work with [our athletes] on that."       Lorenzo Cain Jersey .Y. -- Syracuse guard Trevor Cooney was mired in a shooting slump, and his woes coincided with a late-season swoon by the Orange.
