"I'm very happy today. I managed to show good jumps at the race. I proved what I've been saying for a while: that I can make it to the podium," Prevc said.

Ryoyu Kobayashi is the winner of the last World Cup race ahead of the 68th Four Hills Tournament, and Austrian Jan Hörl was third.

Four other Slovenians made it to the finals in very unstable weather today: Anže Lanišek finished 14th, Rok Justin was 16th, Domen Prevc 19th and Tilen Bartol 30th.

Anže Semenič and Timi Zajc failed to qualify.

The next stop for ski jumpers is Oberstdorf on 28 December.
