Self-assured after his victory in yesterday's competition in Sapporo Daiki Ito (JPN, Fischer) secured his second World Cup win ever in Sunday's competition last night. He won ahead of Kamil Stoch (POL, Fischer) and Andreas Kofler (AUT, Fischer).
"Of course I'm very happy!"
Daiki Ito did it again: After his success yesterday he was able to celebrate another World Cup victory at his home hill on Sunday. He reached 127,5 and 137 metres which gave him a small margin ahead of the first round's winner Kamil Stoch and Andreas Kofler who was ranked only fifth aber the first jump. "Of course I’m very happy", stated Ito. "Before the weekend I would have never thought that I can win twice here in Sapporo. After the first round today I was also not thinking about a possible second win, I was just focusing on the jump. I had the feeling that my jumps today were even better than yesterday."

Fourth went to Roman Koudelka (CZE, Fischer) who confirmed his great shape again while Vegard Haukoe Sklett (NOR, Fischer) made another top ten result in finishing fifth ahead of the best German Richard Freitag (GER, Fischer). Taku Takeuchi (JPN, Fischer), Thomas Morgenstern (AUT, Fischer) and Anders Fannemel (NOR, Fischer) completed the top ten.
