Slovenia ended Germany's dominance in the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup team events with victory in Willingen on Saturday.

Wins in the previous two events of the season had seen Germany climb to the top of the team standings, however they were denied a third straight victory as Peter Prevc led Slovenia home by 26.2 points.

After the first round of jumps on the HS145 hill, Slovenia found themselves in third place behind Germany and Norway, but all four members of the team improved in the second round, with Prevc sealing top spot on the podium with a final jump that earned 136.4 points.

Germany - led by Severin Freund - had raced into an early advantage in front of an expectant home crowd, but they were overhauled.

Norway (916.5 points) had to settle for third for the second time this season, while Japan and Austria completed the top five.

The team title will be decided in March when the final two rounds take place.
