Akito Watabe put up a strong fight against Norway’s Jarl Magnus Riiber and finished third, earning his fourth straight podium finish, on Day 3 of the Nordic combined World Cup in Seefeld, Austria.

Riiber, who finished atop the rankings in both of the previous days’ competition, had to fight off Finland’s Ilkka Herola and Watabe before claiming his second successive Triple victory with a successful late attack on the last uphill into the stadium.
