Norway’s Halvor Egner Granerud, already the overall Ski Jumping World Cup champion, is well placed to secure the overall ski flying honours in the Slovenian resort of Planica this weekend.

He goes into the first of the last two scheduled finals - postponed until tomorrow because of poor weather - having placed fifth in qualifying.

One position ahead of him is his main rival for the ski flying title, Austria’s Stefan Kraft.

Granerud’s total of 380 points puts him 60 ahead of his rival, but with 100 points for the winner it’s still all to fly for, with a second event scheduled for Sunday (April 2).

Qualifying was topped by three home athletes.

Anze Lanisek finished top with 224.8 points, from Timi Zajc, on 241.5 and Domen Prevc on 210.8.

Kraft totalled 209.2, with Granerud on 206.5.
