Ammann poised to win World Cup crystal globe

Switzerland’s Simon Ammann has virtually secured overall victory in the World Cup ski jump, after his latest win in Kuopio in Finland on Tuesday.

The Olympic gold medallist out-distanced the field for the 14th time in the World Cup, landing 128.5 and 126 metre jumps for a total of 251 points.

Amman is enjoying a winning streak, bagging his fifth consecutive victory in individual competitions, including the two Olympic disciplines last month.

Second place in Kuopio was taken by Adam Malysz of Poland, while the Norwegian Anders Jacobsen came in third.

With only two more competitions to go in the World Cup, Amman is 183 points ahead of his nearest rival Gregor Schlierenzauer of Austria, who finished 11th on Tuesday.

All eyes will be on Ammann at the next event in Lillehammer in Norway on Friday where he could become the first ever Swiss to take home the crystal globe in the World Cup ski jump. and agencies
