Prevc jumped 235.5 and 232.5 metres to earn 423.1 points, and was followed by compatriot Jurij Tepeš at seventh (229.5/242 m, 421.8 points), and his younger brother Domen Prevc at eighth place (236.5/243.5 m, 409.7 points).

Kamil Stoch of Poland was the winner with jumps of 238.5 and 237 metres and 466.6 points, followed by Noriaki Kasai of Japan (239.5/241.5 m, 448 points) and Michael Hayböck of Austria (241.5/222.5 m, 430.4 points).

Domen Prevc is the best Slovenian so far in the World Cup, taking the 6th place in the overall standings with 938 points.

Today's event in Vikersund was the last before the World Cup season finale in Slovenia's Planica next week, which will see three competitions Friday through Sunday.

"It is important that I enjoyed myself, that two days of long jumps are behind me. All thoughts are now focused on Planica, where I hope the fans will turn out in the biggest possible number," said Peter Prevc.

His brother Domen, who set his personal best three times today, the last time at 243.5 m said that he was ready for Planica. "We are coming home peaceful and satisfied", he added.
