Kobayashi halfway to Four Hills sweep

Ryoyu Kobayashi became on Tuesday the first Japanese man in 21 years to win the two opening legs of the Four Hills ski jumping competition when he claimed victory in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.
Kobayashi followed up his success in Oberstordf on Sunday by scoring 266.6 points across two jumps, 1.9 points ahead of Germany's Markus Eisenbichler in second place.
Poland's Olympic team bronze medallist Dawid Kubacki finished third on 256.2pts.
The 22-year-old is seeking to become the first Japanese Four Hills overall tournament champion since Kazuyoshi Funaki in 1997/1998, who also won twice in the two Bavarian stages 21 years ago.
The event moves to Austria next where the jumpers will compete at Innsbruck on January 4 and Bischofshofen two days later.
