18-year-old Cene Prevc dominated on the large hill at the Puijo with 133.5 m and 128 m and a total of 258.0 points. This means that the jumper of Kranj was on the podium in five of the six Continentalcups this summer, he won three of them.

Once again the second place went to Miran Zupancic with 130 m and 123 m (243.3 points). For him it was already the fourth Top 3 result in the last weeks.

The hosts could also celebrate a top result on Sunday. With Olli Muotka in third a Finn made it to the podium in this event. With 127.5 m and 124.5 m (230.5 points) he overtook Germany's Stephan Leyhe, who was third at halftime and came in fourth in the end.

Junior World Champion Jakub Woly came in ninth, his teammate Stefan Hula had some bad luck. The Pole, who was sixth after the first round, showed the longest jump of the round with 133.5 m in the final but he fell and so the 27-year-old finished 11th.
