Austria's Stefan Kraft claimed his second World Cup ski jumping win of the season and 27th of his career Saturday in Sapporo.

With jumps of 139.0 and 135.5 meters, Kraft scored 283.5 points, 5.6 ahead of Norwegian runner-up Halvor Egner Granerud, at Okurayama Hill. Japan's Ryoyu Kobayashi followed the previous day's victory with a third-place finish, 7.4 points behind Kraft.

"I was two times really aggressive," Kraft said. "It was not my best qualification jump, so I was a little bit angry."

Asked what he expects for Sunday's competition, the 29-year-old said, "We expect a headwind. That's fun, and I like this. It will be a fun competition."

Kobayashi's second-round jump of 137.5 meters got him to the podium after the Beijing Olympic gold medalist placed 11th at the end of the first round.

"I'm happy," said Kobayashi, who has struggled for most of this season. "Now I feel good about my jumps, so I want to continue after I return to Europe."

"Many people came out to watch today's competition in the cold. I'll try to show them my big jumps again tomorrow."
