Following the first three jumps, the Slovenian team was 12 points ahead of Austria, but the battle between Marita Kramer and Klinec ended to the benefit of Kramer.

The Austrian team garnered a total of 959.3 points, followed by Slovenia's with 957.9 and Norway in third place with 942.1 points.

Križnar did excellently, landing a 106-metre jump in the finals.

"The riddle is solved. I'd lacked being relaxed and enjoying, but today I really enjoyed it. I did a superb jump ... I was under severe pressure but took it well," she told public broadcaster TV Slovenija.

Today's feat comes after Klinec won gold yesterday to become the first Slovenian female ski jumping world champion.
