At Sunday's event in Trondheim, Norway, the Swiss jumper bested his competitors with a total of 280.2m.

Finland's Matti Hautamäki finished second with 278.3m and Schlierenzauer's 274.8m was good for third place.

On Saturday, Ammann ended fifth, only managing 271.3m.

After the first three events of the season, Ammann leads the field with 245 points, 25 ahead of Schlierenzauer.

The next World Cup competition will be held in Italy next weekend at the 2006 Olympic ski jumping facility.
