Juliane Seyfarth dominated the Ski Jumping World Cup in Russia putting together two huge jumps to take victory for a second win in as many days.

The German put together a combined score of 230.3 across her two jumps in Nizhny Tagil as she held off current World Cup leader Maren Lundby to double up following Saturday’s success.

Olympic champion for Norway in Pyeongchang, Lundby has an unassailable 405-point lead in the overall standings but was unable to match Seyfarth's performance with a score of 221.1, having to settle for the runners-up spot for the second day running.

Germany's Katharina Althaus took third with 214.1 points and remains second overall while the win keeps Seyfarth third in the overall standings with just two events left in the season.
