Stoch carries winning form to WislaComments
Double Olympic champion Kamil Stoch continued his fine form of late by winning a world cup ski jumping event on home snow in Wisla, Poland.
It was a double win for the 39-year-old Zakopane native as the result lifted him to the summit of the overall world cup standings.
Stoch, who earlier this month won the prestigious Four Hills Tournament, produced jumps of 133 et 124 metres to claim his third win of the season.
Austrian Stefan Kraft won the opening leg of the Four Hills in Oberstdorf but missed out on a second triumph this campaign by just over 16 points.
He registered 133 and 117 metres to claim second, which was his sixth podium finish this term.
Germany’s Andreas Wellinger rounded out the Wisla podium in third.
Wellinger produced jumps of 127.5 and 120.5 metres for his first top three finish of the season.
Former world cup leader, 17-year-old sensation Domen Prevc was fifth and consequently dropped to second overall.
The world cup circuit stays in Wisla for another competition on Sunday before moving 130 kilometres southeast to Zakopane next weekend.
