Poland’s Kamil Stoch topped the qualification standings at the International Ski Federation Ski Jumping World Cup in Lillehammer.
The Pyeongchang 2018 large hill champion produced a jump of 139.5 metres at the Lysgårdsbakkene Ski Jumping Arena, which hosted 1994 Olympic competition.
Stoch’s effort earned him a total of 153.5 points in the second qualification event of the Raw Air event.
He was followed by compatriot Dawid Kubacki, the Polish jumper ending some way adrift with a total of 136.4 points.
The top three was rounded off by Norway’s Robert Johansson, who scored 136.3 points.
Norway’s Andreas Stjernen and Slovenia's Peter Prevc also impressed, finishing in fourth and fifth position.
They ended with scores of 135.7 and 133.9 points, respectively.
Daniel Andre Tande, winner of the Holmenkollen event yesterday in Oslo, could only manage 10th place in qualifying.
Stoch will hope to avoid a repeat of yesterday’s competition, where he placed only sixth after leading in qualifying.
Tomorrow’s event will mark the halfway stage of Raw Air, which takes place on all four Norwegian hills.
Trondheim and Vikersund will hold the final two events, which form part of the World Cup circuit.
