Four Hills 2021 - Imperious Kamil Stoch triumphs at Bischofshofen to take third Four Hills title
In the end it was inevitable, no-one was able to catch Kamil Stoch. The leader coming into the final jump of Four Hills wrapped up his third title. Sotch joins Bjorn Wirkola and Helmut Recknagel on three titles and has only Jaane Ahonen and Jens Weissflog ahead of him now as he cements his legendary legacy.

The other two finished outside the top ten on the day as Norway’s Marius Lindvik finished second behind Stoch with Stefan Kraft and Robert Johansson both jumping well to round up the top five.
But no-one could live with Stoch, who notched two perfect scores from the judges on his second jump.
