Zajc jumped 230 m twice and won with a score of 449.3 points. Prevc lost 4.2 points to him after jumping on 230.5 m and 232 m. Kraft jumped 222 m and 225.5 m. The Austrian was nine points worse than Zajc. His compatriot Michael Hayboeck was right behind the podium.

The 23-year-old Slovenian won the fourth individual victory in the World Cup competition in his career. The ski jumping hill in Oberstdorf is his favorite because he won there for the third time. He was also the best in 2019 and 2022.
