Career[edit]

2015: World Cup debut[edit]

Domen Prevc competed in the 2015 European Youth Olympic Winter Festival. He made an individual World Cup debut on 22 November 2015 in Klingenthal with eighth place. He needed only four World Cup starts to reach his first podium on 19 December 2015 in Engelberg where he took second place.[1] At that event, Domen and Peter Prevc shared a podium as first brothers in the World Cup history.[2]

2016: First win and yellow bib[edit]

He won his first World Cup individual event on 25 November 2016 at the 2016/17 season opening in Kuusamo/Ruka, and therefore wore yellow bib as the World Cup overall leader for the first time in his career.[3][4] Soon after that he won another three December World Cup individual events in Klingenthal, Lillehammer and Engelberg.[5][6][7]

2017: Ski flying debut[edit]

On 28 January 2017 in Willingen, three brothers represented a national team for the first time in the World Cup team event history, as he jumped with his brothers Cene and Peter, together with Jurij Tepeš. Despite his youth, he competed for the first time in his career at the ski flying event in Oberstdorf on 3 February 2017. On 19 March 2017 in Vikersund, he improved his personal best jump to 243.5 metres (798 ft).[8]
