Like 24 hours ago the competition provided an exciting outcome. Slovenian eagles, Domen Prevc, Peter Prevc, Bor Pavlovčič and Anže Lanišek were close to the podium after the first round trailing Poland by 18.4 points. Germany was in the lead with 874.0 points and Norway second with 862.9.

It was soon clear that the Polish team will take the bronze and home team the forth but it wasn’t clear till the last jump who will become the World Champion. Halvor Egner Granerud of Norway landed at 234.5 meters and was followed by Karl Geiger. The German managed 224.5 meters which wasn’t enough to maintain the lead. Team Norway, Granerud, Daniel Andre Tande, Johann Andre Forfang and Robert Johansson thus won the gold.
