Dawid Kubacki has won the prestigious ski jumping competition in Garmisch-Partenkirchen on New Year's Day.

The Pole was ahead of the Norwegian Halvor Egner Granerud in Germany.

Thirty-year-old Kubacki reached 139 meters on his first jump and made a big impression on his second attempt with a record distance of 144 meters.

It was more than enough for the victory in Germany.

The Norwegian Granerud (137 and 136 meters) finished second and thus prevented a full Polish podium.

Third place went to Piotr Zyla and reigning Olympic champion Kamil Stoch finished fourth.

The game in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is traditionally considered the second part of the Four Hills Tournament and is always held on New Year's Day.

Last year, the Norwegian Marius Lindvik was victorious on the first day of the year.

The first game of the Vierschansen tour was won on Tuesday in Oberstdorf, Germany by the German Karl Geiger.

Next week there are still games in the Austrian Innsbruck (Monday) and Bischofshofen (Wednesday) on the program.

The Four Hills Tournament was won by Kubacki last year.

Also in 2017 and 2018, the overall victory went to a Pole (Stoch).
