Germany took Winter Olympics gold in the ski jumping team event in Sochi to end Austria's nine-year spell of dominance in major competitions.

Germany's four-man team - Andreas Wank, Marinus Kraus, Andreas Wellinger and Severin Freund - won by a narrow 2.7 margin over the two four-jump rounds.

Defending champions Austria, who had won eight straight Olympic and World titles, had to be content with silver.

Japan, led by 41-year-old veteran Noriaki Kasai, claimed bronze.
