Norway's jumpers take top honours at Planica

Norway took the spoils on the penultimate event of this season’s World Cup with a spectacular performance in the team ski-jump at Planica in Slovenia.

The quartet of Robert Johansson, Johan Andre Forfrang, Anders Fannemal and Andreas Sternen claimed victory with a total of 1551.6 points.

They led from start to finish, and even though Sternen only recorded the tenth and fourth best leaps in the final round, the quality of his team-mates efforts was enough to see them finish top of the podium.

Germany managed to hold on to second spot despite finishing fourth in the final round while Poland came third, largely thanks to the efforts of Kamil Stoch, who mathematically still has chance of taking the individual title on Sunday.

With one event remaining Poland maintain their lead in the Nations Cup standings with Austria second and Germany third.
