Jakub Kot completed the sweep on Sunday.

The Polish ski jumper won the second FIS Cup event at Whistler Olympic Park and in additon to Saturday's win in the Canadian National Championships, took all three open men's gold medals this weekend.

The results marked the 25-year-old's first time on the FIS Cup podium since 2010 and his first win on the circuit since 2009.

On Sunday, Kot posted a final score of 249.5 with a long jump of 101 metres to best American A.J. Brown (219) and Norwegian Stian Andres Skinnes (205.5).

Josh Maurer, with a 186.5, was the top Canadian in sixth.

"It was a perfect weekend for me. I'm happy to be here for the first time and I hope it's not the last time," he said. "Jumping was good. The hill was well prepared."

Kot was thrilled to be back on top of the podium not just once, but three times.

"It's a special feeling. It's important to be the best," he said.
