The summer season of the Continental Cup ended on Sunday with the second competition in Klingenthal. Like on the day before, the competition was won by Klemens Muranka of Poland, ahead of Roberto Dellasega of Italy and Slovenia's Peter Prevc.

Klemens Muranka, who celebrated his first win in the COC on Saturday, repeated this performance in the second event in the Vogtland-Arena. The Pole was seventh after the first round with 131 m, in the final he then posted the longest jump of the day with 144 m. The 19-year-old took today's win with 274.0 points.

"I'm very happy about this weekend and my two wins. I want to thank my coaches and the whole team", said Muranka after a great weekend for him.

Roberto Dellasega, as eighth already among the best yesterday, posted jumps on 129.5 m and 139.5 m (263.7 points), came in second and achieved his first ever podium result in the Continental Cup.

Not only Muranka and Dellasega moved up in the second round, also Peter Prevc improved his performance in the final. After 127 m and the 15th place in the first round, the Slovene jumped on 140 m in the final round and came in third.

Prevc was followed by the best Germans. Markus Eisenbichler, Marinus Kraus and Stephan Leyhe finished fourth, fifth and sixth and closely missed another podium result for the hosting team.

The seventh place went to the best Norwegian, Robert Johansson, followed by Bartlomiej Klusek of Poland (8th) and the best Austrian, Manuel Poppinger (9th).

With his fifth place today, Marinus Kraus of Germany won the overall ranking of the COC this summer with 409 points. Jakub Janda (401 points) and Krzysztof Biegun (292 points), who did not compete in Klingenthal this weekend, are second and third.

"This overall title is very important for me. Finishing first was my main goal for teh summer. The COC is only the "second league", but when you are on top here you can also achieve more", said Kraus, who now hopes to get a chance to compete in Klingenthal again in the Grand Prix early October.
