Ski Jumping: Ziobro leads Polish one-two in maiden victory


Jan Ziobro stunned the big guns to lead a Polish one two at a world cup ski jumping meet in Engelberg, Switzerland.

The Pole, who had never reached the podium before, began with a leap of 134 metres to take the lead after round one.

In what he later described as the best day of his ski jumping career Ziobro then had the crowd on its feet when he produced 141 metres in round two for a record jump on this hill.

The 22-year-old celebrated his first career victory with a winning score of 275.4 points.

Teammate and Polish captain Kamil Stoch, who had won the previous stage in Germany, continued his good form with a second place finish.

Stoch scored 269.2 points and with his runners up finish he jumped to the summit of the overall standings.

He leapfrogged former pace-setter Gregor Schlierenzauer of Austria and now leads the multiple world champion by eight points.

Norway’s Anders Bardal was third on the day.
