Ryoyu Kobayashi won the ski flying World Cup event in Planica, Slovenia, on Thursday for his 19th victory on the tour, tying the record for most by a Japanese man in Nordic skiing.

With his 19th individual win, the 24-year-old Kobayashi drew level with Kenji Ogiwara, a three-time winner of the Nordic combined overall World Cup title, and Akito Watabe, a two-time Olympic silver medalist in Nordic combined.
