Austria won Saturday's team event on the long hill at the Nordic World Championships at Predazzo, retaining a title they have held since 2005.

The Austrian quartet saw off Germany and Poland with Norway dropped to fourth.

The Norwegians initially placed second but were demoted two places after the race jury accepted a protest by Germany over the first leg points tallies.

1. Austria 1135.9 points
