Wochit 0:44 mins

Ski jumper Kamil Stoch completed a gold medal sweep of the normal and large hills at the Sochi Olympics on Saturday despite a mistake on his final jump that nearly made 41-year-old Noriaki Kasai of Japan the oldest-ever Winter Games champion. The Polish jumper joins Simon Ammann and Matti Nykanen as the only men to win both individual events at the same Winter Olympics. Stoch said "I made such a big mistake in the second round, I don't know how I jumped so far. I was too aggressive. That's why I flew so far, but hey, what the heck? That's why I won.''
