The Overall World Cup leader posted 133.5 meters in his first effort but then soared to 136 metres to claim his fourth win from the past five world cup events.

After his third place finish in the opening four hills leg in Oberstdorf the Slovenian tops the tournament standings with two stops left.

Kenneth Gangnes of Norway recorded a second effort of 134 meters to add to his 132 metres in the first heat.

His second score propelled him up the leaderboard and onto the second spot of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen podium.

Rounding out that podium was leg one winner from three days ago, Severin Freund of Germany.

He was second after the first heat but a leap of 132.5 meters left him down in third.

He is now second in the Four Hills standings with the next leg taking place on Sunday at the Austrian resort of Innsbruck
