Germany's Eric Frenzel won his second International Ski Federation Nordic Combined World Cup event in as many days to move to the top of the overall standings.

After winning in Seefeld yesterday, in the first leg of the third Nordic Combined Triple competition, the 27-year-old normal hill/10 kilometres Olympic champion was again too good for the rest of the field at the Austrian venue.

It was the same scenario as yesterday with Frenzel coming second after the ski jumping leg behind Japan's Akito Watabe.

The Japanese, the silver medallist behind Frenzel at Sochi 2014, gained 129.6 points to top the jump standings after an effort of 103.5 metres.

Frenzel's 99.5m and 128.7 points meant he started the 10km cross-country leg four seconds behind Watabe and he was able to overhaul his rival in the final kilometre of the race.

The German finished with a time of 23 min 11.5 sec, with Watabe 24.9 behind him in second.

Fabian Rießle, another German, completed an identical podium from yesterday as he skied in 1:27.27 adrift of Frenzel.

Rießle, the 25-year-old double Olympic medallist, was the previous World Cup leader after two victories this season but he has now been leap-frogged by Frenzel who has 471 points on top of the pile.

Second-placed Rießle now has 454 with Watabe third on 394.

The Nordic Combined Triple continues in Seefeld tomorrow with another World Cup leg, with the ski jumping followed by a 15km cross-country race.
