On Saturday, he led Poland to victory in the team competition team before winning the individual competition 24 hours later.

Malysz jumped 103.5 and 107 meters to finish 3.8 points ahead of Austria's Thomas Morgenstern.

Simon Ammann, the double Olympic champion from Vancouver, was down in sixth place.

Poland gained 1001.7 points to finish ahead of the Norwegians and Germans in the team contest.

Traditionally, the Grand Prix has given a good indication of the form for the upcoming season. The last five winners - Jakub Janda, Malysz, Thomas Morgenstern, Gregor Schlierenzauer and Ammann - each went on to win the overall World Cup the following winter.

The series continues in Courcheval and Einsiedeln this weekend.
