Overall International Ski Federation (FIS) Ski Jumping World Cup champion Peter Prevc ended the season in style with victory in the final competition of the campaign on home snow in Planica.

The 23-year-old Slovenian won the ski flying event with leaps of 238 metres and 241.5m which gave him a winning tally of 435.0.

His victory was his 15th of the season - a record - and saw him back up his success in the first individual competition in Planica on Thursday (March 17).

Second place went to another Slovenian, Robert Kranjec, who won the second individual competition on Friday (March 18).

Today he leaped 234m and 233m for 420.4 points, which was enough to push Norway's Johann André Forfang into bronze.

The 20-year-old prospect recorded varying efforts of 226m and 245m to tally 405.4 points.

Slovenian coach Goran Janus cried tears of joy at the end of a season which also saw Prevc win the prestigious Four Hills tournament as well as the Ski Flying World Championship and World Cup.

His country also overtook Germany in the Nations Cup standings and finished second, behind already confirmed winners Norway.

It was a day of celebration for the country, with Kranjec donning an eagle costume at one stage amid a party atmosphere.

Prevc finishes the overall World Cup season on 2303 points, a record tally which beat the 2009 record of Austria's Gregor Schlierenzauer, who managed 2083.

Germany's Severin Freund and Norway's Kenneth Gangnes were second and third, on 1490 and 1348 points respectively.
