Slovenia’s Peter Prevc produced a stunning performance to complete a weekend sweep of ski jump World Cup events at Engelberg on Sunday.

The 23-year-old, who outclassed his teenage brother Domen on Saturday, set a hill record of 142 meters to claim his ninth career win with a total of 304.2 points.

Michael Hayboeck of Austria was second with jumps of 136.5 and 135.5 meters with Norway’s Kenneth Gangnes completing the podium, 4.4 points adrift.

Prevc, who will now head to the traditional Four Hills tournament as favourite, leads the overall World Cup standings with 564 points, 165 ahead of Germany’s Severin Freund.
