Poland's Kamil Stoch produced the best leap of the day to top the qualification standings at the International Ski Federation (FIS) Ski Jumping World Cup in Norwegian city Trondheim.
The double Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games gold medallist jumped 139 metres to earn a score of 146 points, which was good enough to secure first place.
Norway's Andreas Stjernen also registered a leap of 139m but was knocked back to 144.5 points which saw him finish in second.
Germany's Andreas Wellinger was five points behind the Norwegian in third on 139.5.
The competition is another part of the inaugural Raw Air Tournament in Norway.
Following today's competition, Wellinger currently leads the overall tournament with a ranking of 942.2.
He is followed by Austria's Stefan Kraft, who qualified in 27th place today, with 935.1.
Germany's Markus Eisenbichler, who took eighth today, lies in third with 917.5.
Action in Trondheim is set to conclude tomorrow.
Yesterday's World Cup event in Lillehammer, that was cancelled due to high winds, has now been rearranged.
Around 26 competitors had jumped but the competition was cancelled midway through due to the adverse conditions.
It will now take place on Friday (March 17) on the Ski Flying hill in Vikersund.
The competition will not include a qualification stage and will be decided after only one round with all athletes eligible to compete.
