Stoch retains Olympic ski jump title with last leap

Poland's Kamil Stoch produced a clutch final jump of 136.5 metres to retain his Olympic title in a cliff-hanging men's large hill ski jumping final Saturday.

The Pole's team-mates hoisted the 30-year-old onto their shoulders after he pipped Andreas Wellinger at the death, preventing the German from winning his second gold medal of the Pyeongchang Games.

Wellinger had to settle for silver after winning last week's normal hill as he pulled off a monster leap of 142.0 metres but fell just short of Stoch's points total of 285.7.

The bronze medal went to Norway's Robert Johansson, who also finished third in the normal hill.
