Poland's Kamil Stoch produced a jump of 138.5 meters to clinch victory in the Four Hills final in Bischofshofen.

Austria's Michael Hayboeck put the pressure on Stoch with a monster jump of 142 meters, but Stoch produced the jump he needed to secure victory.

On what proved a successful night for the Poles, Piotr Zyla completed the top three after a second jump of 137 meteres.

However, Daniel Andre Tande was left distraught after he misjudged his crucial jump, falling out of contentionn in dramatic style. The winner of the second Four Hills event in Garmisch-Partenkirchen appeared to get caught by the wind and landed awkwardly, finishing in a lowly 26th place.

Germany's Richard Freitag, Stephan Leyhe and Karl Geiger all finished in the top ten, but were unable to challenge the leaders on a competitive final day of jumping in Austria.
