Future prospect Sigurd Pettersen claimed his second World Cup ski jumping title of the season in Sapporo on Sunday to complete a triumphant weekend for Norway.

Trailing Austrian Andreas Widhoelzel after his first jump of 129 meters, Pettersen nailed the day’s longest jump of 131.5 meters in the second round at the K-120 Okurayama hill to earn a winning total of 271.4 points as Norway dominated the two-day Sapporo meet.

Compatriot Roar Ljoekelsoey beat Austrian teenager Christian Nagiller to claim his first career victory on the World Cup circuit Saturday.
