Benkovič started with his sport career at the relatively advanced age of eleven, when he first participated in ski jumping in 1997. In Sollefteå, Sweden, he won the silver medal at the Junior World Championship on February 6, 2003. His biggest success came at the 2005 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Oberstdorf, where he won the individual normal hill on February 19, 2005, making him the second Slovenian to win a gold medal after that of Franci Petek in 1991. The very next day, he won a bronze medal for the Slovenians in a team normal hill competition involving Primož Peterka, Jure Bogataj and Jernej Damjan.
