HELSINKI (AP) — Kamil Stoch of Poland won the ski jumping event at the Kuopio Ski Games on Tuesday to increase his lead in the overall World Cup standings.
Stoch scored 262.7 points from his two jumps, beating Severin Freund of Germany in second place with 258.9 points. Norway's Anders Bardal was third with 257.6.
The win gave Stoch 1,231 points in the overall standings, ahead of Slovenia's Peter Prevc with 1,128 and Freund with 987.
Stoch, who was leading the standings before the Sochi Olympics, was briefly pushed down to second place on Friday by Prevc until he regained the lead in Lahti, Finland, on Sunday.
Prevc finished fourth on Tuesday.
