Germany’s Richard Freitag held hid nerve to clinch a ski jump World Cup event at Engelberg on Saturday.

The 23-year-old looked in great shape and cleared 128.5 metres before making sure of the win with an impressive leap of 135.5 metres, en route to his fourth career World Cup win.

Freitag’s two-round score of 277.7 points was enough to edge out Roman Koudelka of the Czech Republic while first-round leader Michael Hayboeck of Austria had to settle for third place.

Anders Fannemel of Norway retained his overall World Cup lead despite placing 21st and now leads Germany’s Severin Freund by 43 points. Freitag’s win sees him move up to 15th overall.
