Women will compete in the ski jump for the first time ever in the Winter Olympics Tuesday. Don't blink, you might miss it. While the men will compete on both hills and in team competition this week, the women will take only one day to jump from the smaller hill. But it is a big leap for womankind, the culmination of a long legal battle. Though men have competed in ski jumping since the first Winter Games in 1924, and though women are allowed to compete in bobsled, luge and ice hockey, the International Olympic Committee had refused to let women ski jump in the games until now. Why?

For Dan Murphy, the scariest thing about ski jumping into the Inner Harbor yesterday wasn't the murky green water. It was screaming four stories down a 4-foot-wide white carpet at 30 mph, heading for his somersaults."

NAGANO, Japan -- In Europe, he's a star. Back home in Steamboat Springs, Colo., he's lucky to be recognized at his local Subway shop.But Todd Lodwick doesn't seem to mind. This unassuming 21-year-old isn't after fame and fortune. He's only after one of the big prizes at the Winter Olympics -- trying to become the first American to claim a medal in the Nordic combined.And Lodwick's medal hope isn't some sort of pipe dream. He's a big player on the international circuit, with two career World Cup victories and a world junior title on his resume.

Tourists seeking a break on prices at the 1992 Winter Olympics will have about as much success in France's Savoie region as Great Britain's Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards will have in the ski-jumping competition.Tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies in Albertville are on sale for $61, $143, $204 or $305, but one should not count on being able to purchase them because 60 percent of the seats in the 35,000-seat stadium are reserved for media, sponsors and VIPs. Tickets for the figure-skating competition, also in Albertville, will cost $61, $143 or $204.

Sometimes in sports, fundamentals change instantly, and everything learned through a career is suddenly about as up-to-date as a Model T.Right is wrong, and wrong is right.So here was Jim Holland of the United States preparing to make his Winter Olympics debut in ski jumping, and his craft was being turned upside down.For 16 years, Holland was taught the traditional way to jump: skis straight and body extended forward. And then these Scandinavian teen-agers flew out of nowhere and pointed their skis and their sport in a new direction.

TURIN, Italy -- The marquee event of the first weekend brought its share of surprises and disappointments as little-thought-of French skier Antoine Deneriaz won the men's downhill yesterday. U.S. bad boy Bode Miller was considered a strong medal contender, but he struggled down the course and finished fifth. Teammate Daron Rahlves finished 10th on a course on which he won a World Cup event. Deneriaz was ranked 38th in the World Cup standings and was the 30th person down the course. But his mastery was evident from the top as he won the race by the largest margin of victory -- almost three-fourths of a second -- in 42 years.

Curling CASSIE JOHNSON AND JAMIE JOHNSON Cassie and Jamie Johnson were born to curling. The sisters from Bemidji, Minn., are half of the U.S. women's squad that finished second to Sweden at the world championships. As skip, Cassie, 24, calls the shots. Jamie, 25, has her back as vice skip. They are fourth-generation curlers whose parents won the 1980 National Mixed Championship. This is only the third time that curling has been a medal event at the Olympics. Sweden and Canada may take the top two slots, but Johnson and Johnson should keep the United States in the podium hunt.

PARK CITY, Utah - Simon Ammann is Swiss Air. The 20-year-old who surprised everyone to take the gold medal in the 90-meter ski jumping event proved it was no fluke by duplicating that performance yesterday in winning the 120-meter competition before 20,469 fans. "I am trembling. There are no words for this," said Ammann, who has never won a World Cup event. He was tied going into the final jump with Germany's Sven Hannawald, a 27-year-old Olympic veteran who took the silver Sunday and was a favorite yesterday.
