By: J.S., STA

Slovenian ski jumper Peter Prevc finished fourth in the men’s normal hill individual event at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

He was half a point short to clinch what could have been his third Olympic medal after the two he won at Sochi 2014. Japan’s Ryoyu Kobayashi won the gold medal, Austria’s Manuel Fettner the silver and Poland’s Dawid Kubacki the bronze. Another Slovenian made it to the top ten as Timi Zajc placed ninth.
