Poland's Kamil Stoch continued his fine form from the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics as he topped qualification at the International Ski Federation Ski Jumping World Cup in Lahti today.

Stoch won the large hill title at the Games in South Korea last month, as well as team bronze with his colleagues.

He now boasts three Olympic gold medals in all after large hill and normal hill success at Sochi 2014 and recorded the longest qualifying jump of 134.5 metres in Finland today.

This gave him 146.7 points at the top of the qualifying board, at an event which forms part of the Lahti Ski Games.

The Pole won the Four Hills Tournament this season and is also the current leader in the World Cup standings.

His team-mate Dawid Kubacki, also an Olympic team bronze medallist, was second best today as he lept 130.5m for 142.9 points.

Germany's Markus Eisenbichler qualified in third place, leaping 128m for a tally of 139.6.

The top 50 jumpers today all reached the final, which will take place on Sunday (March 4) following a team competition tomorrow.

Olympic normal hill champion Andreas Wellinger safely progressed in seventh.

The Lahti Ski Games also features Cross-Country and Nordic Combined World Cup action, with both sports taking place tomorrow.

Sprint races will be held in cross-country, with a team sprint in Nordic Combined.

Elsewhere, there was women's World Cup ski jumping action in Rasnov in Romania.

Norway's Maren Lundby matched Stoch by following up Pyeongchang 2018 gold with a table-topping performance.

She lept 94m for 115.3 points to lead the 40 qualifiers.

Austria's Jacqueline Seifriedberger recorded a jump of 92.5m for 113.5 points, qualifying second.

Third best was Nika Kriznar of Slovenia, whose jump of 91m gave her 113.1 points.

Two individual women's events will now be held over the next two days.
