Kot seals status as man to beat after PyeongChang ski jump

Maciej Kot is celebrating his second World Cup victory within a week at the ski jumping World Cup in South Korea.

After topping the podium at Sapporo in Japan last Saturday, the Pole carried his good form over to PyeongChang.

Due to strong winds, the event was moved to the normal hill from the large hill but that didn’t appear to bother the Pole who moved up to first from fifth after the first round.

Stefan Kraft of Austria and Germany’s Andreas Wellinger came in second and third.

Wellinger also came from behind. He was only 16th after the first round but he made the longest jump of the day of 112 m in the final to grab a place on the podium.

Poland’s Kamil Stoch remains in the lead of the overall World Cup with 1280 points, followed by Stefan Kraft (1220 points) and Daniel Andre Tande (1119 points).
