Austria’s Stefan Kraft has taken the lead in the Raw Air Tournament standings after topping the men’s large hill individual qualification event at the International Ski Federation Ski Jumping World Cup in Trondheim.
The 25-year-old managed a distance of 135.5 metres for 138.5 points in the Norwegian city.
It moves him above home favourite Robert Johansson, who finished eighth today, to the top of the standings with 1,075.9 points.
Johansson is second with 1,070.6 points, while Japan’s Ryoyu Kobayashi, today’s runner-up with 127.1, is third with 1,048.5.
Poland’s Dawid Kubacki ranked third today with 126.8 points.
The men's final is scheduled to take place tomorrow before the teams take a charter plane to Vikersund, where the final of the third Raw Air Tournament will be held this weekend.
Norway’s Maren Lundby finished first in women’s qualification and is now on the brink of winning the inaugural edition of the women’s Raw Air Tournament.
The 24-year-old overall World Cup leader jumped 128.5m to score 125.5 points.
Austria’s Eva Pinkelnig was second with 123.4 points, while Japan’s Yuki Ito scored 118.6 points with her 127m jump.
Lundy’s lead in the Raw Air Tournament standings is now 26.8 points going into the third and final competition of the women’s event tomorrow.
She has 870.5 points to nearest challenger Katharina Althaus' total of 843.7.
One place behind German athlete Althaus is Austria’s Daniela Iraschko-Stolz with 811.2 points.
The Raw Air Tournament groups together performances at four Norwegian World Cup stops, with the Trondheim leg following those in Lillehammer and Oslo.
A combined points tally - including from the qualification rounds and the team events - decides the winner.
Qualification and team rounds do not count towards the World Cup rankings, however.
