OSLO, Norway — Slovenia won the team ski jump event on Saturday, edging out host nation Norway.

Led by individual World Cup leader Peter Prevc, the team of Jurij Tepes, Domen Prevc and Robert Kranjec scored 977.7 points, compared to Norway's 945.3.

Peter Prevc and Domen Prevc were two of only four jumpers who reached 130 meters.

Japan was third on 927.2 on what was a damp, foggy day in the capital.

"Visibility was not that good but for jumping I think it's OK because this is the World Cup and we are used to everything," Tepes said.

After 21 rounds of competition, Norway leads the nation standings, with Germany second and Slovenia third.
