Ski jumping: Stefan Kraft continues winning streak

Stefan Kraft

Stefan Kraft scored a victory in the Ski Jumping World Cup after the final round was cancelled.

The Four-Hills tournament winner won the event in Wisla, Poland, after strong winds forced the second jump to be pulled.

A jump of 129.5 metres gave the Austrian 136.7 points.

With 797 points in total, he also takes the overall World Cup lead.

Peter Prevc

Slovenian Peter Prevc came in second with a jump of 131.5 metres. He described the decision to cancel the final round as “a surprise”, but “a good decision, especially for me because I was second.”

His score of 134.5 points takes his tally to 714 overall.

Severin Freund

Third place went to German Severin Freund, who won the previous weekend’s ski flying event at the Kulm.

Freund jumped 129.5 metres, which gave him 131.1 points; 693 in total.

Four-Hills runner-up Michael Hayboeck came in fourth.
