The Pole has already secured the Big Crystal Globe. 

STA, March 23, 2018 – Poland's Kamil Stoch (455.9 points) won the first event of the ski-flying finals in Planica, Slovenia, on Friday. The season's overall World Cup winner beat Norway's Johann Andre Forfang (452.2) in second and Austria's Stefan Kraft (443) in third place.

Stoch, who already clinched the title of the season's best jumper before the Planica event, managed 245 and 234 metres for victory, his eighth this season and the 30th of his career.

Robert Kranjec (412.7) made a strong comeback as the best Slovenian, finishing 10th after Anže Semenič (416.8), who had the ninth result, was disqualified due to irregularities involving his jumping suit.

Jurij Tepeš (411.1) also rediscovered his old ski flying form with a 12th place, while Peter Prevc (404) was 15th.

The world's second largest ski flying hill will host a team event on Saturday and the final individual event of the season on Sunday.

Competing for team Slovenia on Saturday will be Domen Prevc, Robert Kranjec, Anže Semenič, and Peter Prevc.
