The German was third going into the second round of jumps, as he found himself behind Daniel Huber of Austria and Slovenia’s Anze Lanisek with a score of 130.9
But a second round jump of 134.0m in windy conditions in Poland saw the 29-year-old top the rankings to secure the maximum 100 points.

"It was a little bit windy after the table but it was quite a good jump too. The landing is always terrible, but my second World Cup win, it's unbelievable. I'm so happy,” Eisenbichler said.
Eisenbichler’s compatriot Karl Geiger finished second to make it a German one-two, while Huber managed to stay in contention with a jump of 125.5m on his second attempt to claim third.
First round leader Lanisek eventually dropped to sixth in Wisla, after a second round jump of 118.0m, picking up 40 championship points in the process.
