Olympic team gold medallist Robert Johansson of Norway topped the men's qualification round as the Raw Air Tournament, part of the International Ski Federation Ski Jumping World Cup tour, began in Oslo today.
Johansson produced a jump of 132 metres to finish the qualification phase on 140.6 points on the famous Holmenkollbakken hill.
The 28-year-old, a member of the Norwegian squad which claimed the team gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, ended 4.5 points in front of Poland's Kamil Stoch.
Stoch, silver medallist in the individual normal hill competition at the recent Nordic World Ski Championships, recorded an effort of 130m.
Timi Zajc of Slovenia finished third on 135.1 points having jumped 129.5 metres.
The top 50 athletes progressed to the final, due to be held on Sunday (March 10).
The Raw Air Tournament groups together competitions on four Norwegian hills with the athlete collecting the highest points total declared as the winner.
Japan's Ryōyū Kobayashi leads the World Cup standings with 1,620 points and the Four Hills Tournament champion will be one to watch in Norway.
Poland's triple Olympic champion Kamil Stoch, last year's World Cup champion and Raw Air winner, is second in the rankings on 1,145.
Last month's newly crowned world champions - Markus Eisenbichler of Germany on the large hill and Poland's Dawid Kubacki on the normal hill - should also be a threat.
A team event is scheduled to take place tomorrow.
