Austrian Stefan Kraft, winner of the Four-Hills Tournament, has won the International Ski Federation (FIS) Ski Jumping World Cup in Wisla, Poland.
No second round jumps were held in Wisa after being cancelled due to strong winds, a decision that baffled Kraft.
"I was a bit surprised that the second round was cancelled because the first round was very safe and fair but it ended well for me," he said.
"I like Wisla and this hill very much.
"The last three or four weeks were amazing.
"I really enjoy these moments."
Prevc, who finished third in the Four-Hills contest, jumped 131.5m for 134.5 points to finish just behind his Austrian opponent.
"It was a surprise that the second round was cancelled so fast, but the wind got stronger and stronger," he said.
"I think it was a good decision, especially for me because I was second.
"Zakopane is a special place, I achieve good results there every year and I get to meet many fans."
Freund continued his fine form from the season's opening Ski Flying World Cup in Bad Mitterndorf last week, where he collected gold, to round off the podium in Poland today.
His distance of 129.5m scored him a total of 131.1 points.
"I think that a competition with two rounds is better than a competition with only one round, but the wind was quite strong and changed really fast," he said.
"Zakopane is one of my favourite places and I'm really looking forward to the competitions there."
In fourth was Four-Hills runner up Michael Hayboeck, who sits second behind team mate Kraft in the World Cup leaderboard, after he jumped 128m for 129.4 points.
Rune Velta equalled his best result this season in fifth with 128 m and 127.3 points, while Germany's Markus Eisenbichler came in a career best sixth place with 128.5m for 124.5 points.
With his second win, Kraft now takes the lead in the overall World Cup with 797 points, 43 points ahead of his roommate Hayboeck.
Prevc, 714 points and Severin Freund, 693 points, follow in third and fourth.
