Austria won the ski jumping World Cup team event in Lahti, Finland.

Lahti - 0

Weather conditions forced the event to be held on the small HS97 hill, on which the Austrian quartet of Thomas Morgenstern, Gregor Schlierenzauer, Martin Koch and Andreas Kofler ended a run of three consecutive second places to take victory.

Germany came second, just 0.6 seconds ahead of Poland in third.

Slovenia came fifth, but Jurij Tepes was the star of the event as he smashed the hill record by 2.5m with a leap of 101m.
