Second place Andreas Wellinger of Germany was the only other jumper to clear the 140m mark - doing so on his second effort - to finish on 279.8 points.

Kamil Stoch completed the podium line-up with 268.2, following jumps of 128.5m and 139.7m.

Daniel Andre Tande, who finished sixth in PyeongChang after losing metres on his second jump, remains third on the overall leaderboard.
