Typhoon Nuri Hurtles Toward Hong Kong as Jumping Concludes

Maybe they should turn the jumping finals into a speed round? If a jumpoff for today's individual show jumping is required, it could be a test just to keep the rails up without a horse anywhere near!

The reason? Typhoon Nuri is speeding toward Hong Kong and is expected within hours. It will pack winds of over 100 miles per hour and will certainly wreak havoc with the departure schedule from the airport.

Olympic officials estimate that the jumping will be able to be completed...just in the nick of time.

Typhoon Nuri killed four people in the Philippines this week.
