The aircraft bounced and again touched down heavily before the pilot was able to regain control of the landing. After taxiing to the parking area, the pilot discovered damage to the nose gear leg and adjacent structure. Relatively strong and gusty wind conditions existed at the time of the accident. Sink had been encountered on short final approach and the pilot had been unable to prevent a heavy touchdown.
