Kamil Stoch took glory in Friday's FIS Ski Jumping World Cup event in Willingen.

The Pole benefited from a massive 147.5 metre jump on his first attempt, and although he fell short of that mark second time round, it was enough to see him claim a second World Cup win of the campaign.

Stoch's second attempt was recorded at 142.5m, and the two combined saw him register a score of 276.6.

That was enough to comfortably beat Peter Prevc, who could only manage 262.3.

Severin Freund completed the podium, narrowly shy of Prevc's mark witrh 261.8.

Victory for Stoch saw him climb to 11th in the standings, still well off the pace of leader Stefan Kraft and second-placed Prevc.

Kraft's seventh-placed finish in Willingen saw him earn 36 points, taking him to 1043 overall.

However, his advantage at the top of the leaderboard has now been cut to 39 points, after Prevc took 80 for finishing second.
