Iraschko-Stolz produced jumps of 93 metres and 91.5m which gave her 251.4 points as she pipped Olympic champion Carina Vogt, while Sara Takanshi recovered from a poor start to take third.

"It's great to win three times in a row," Iraschko-Stolz said.

"If somebody would have told me this before the season I would not have believed it.

"Everything feels easy right now.

"I'm happy about the win in front of my home crowd and close to my home town."

Vogt finished 5.8 points adrift of Iraschko-Stolz following efforts of 89m and 88m, and Takanashi, who was eighth after the first round of jumps, produced near identical leaps to surge up the field and claim the last podium place.

At the end of what was a tight competition, only 3.9 points separated third place from 10th, but it proved a day to forget for Spela Rogelj, who finished out of the top 10 for the first time this season.

In the men's team event in Willingen, Germany, Slovenia ended the hosts' dominance of the event by claiming victory by 26.2 points.

The Slovenian team, comprised of Jurij Tepes, Nejc Dezman, Jernej Damjan and Peter Prevc, amassed 957.6 points on their way to a clear win which denied Germany a third straight success.

Prevc's superb second round jump proved to be the catalyst for a Slovenian triumph as he leapt a massive 144.5m, while team mate Damjan also breached the 140m mark with a jump of 143.5m.

Norway were third, Japan claimed fourth and Austria finished in fifth.

"The key to victory is always to jump well and to make only a few mistakes," Damjan said.

"We made the least mistakes today.

"The first jump of Peter Prevc was not that good, but he did a lot better in the final round.

"I've been in the World Cup for a long time and we were the favorite for gold at a major event before and then we didn't win a medal.

"I hope we can change that this time."

The World Cup event continues at both venues tomorrow (February 1).
