Prevc jumped 135 and 132 metres to score 285.5 points, more than ten points ahead of Stefan Kraft of Austria. Japan's veteran jumper Noriaki Kasai was third with a jump of 143 metres in the second series.

Claiming his ninth victory this season, Prevc further extended his World Cup lead ahead of Severin Freund of Germany and Kenneth Gagnes of Norway, who placed 10th and 8th, respectively, today.

With the 15th career World Cup victory, Prevc matched up the record of Primo┼ż Peterka, so far Slovenia's best ski jumper.

This is the 60th men's Ski Jumping World Cup victory for Slovenia, the 51st in individual events. It is the first ever in Trondheim.
