- Dario Colonna finished 24th in his last World Cup appearance in Davos.
- As the best Swiss technique free of more than 15 km, Candide Pralong was ranked 16th.
- The win goes to Norwegian Semen Hegstad Kreuger.
- Norway also celebrates women over 10 km tall. Nadine Fondrich is 30 years old as the best Swiss woman.
Dario Colonna was unable to find his way into his last race at Davos. The last 24th rank can still be rated as a respectable success. The 35-year-old from Graubünden couldn’t keep up with the best in his 30th appearance in Davos, losing 1:42.7 minutes into the lead. At Davos, Cologne achieved 5 podiums during his career. At the end of the season, he will retire from cross-country skiing.
Candide Pralong was the only one who was really satisfied with the Swiss. Valais was the fastest Swiss ski athlete in 16th place and thus earned Olympic qualification. He was very good in the singles World Cup race for the last time 4 years ago, also in Davos. “I had a good feeling from the start and I am very happy with my race,” Pralong said with relief.
Krueger twice after that
The victory at Davos became the prey of Semen Hegstad Krueger. The 28-year-old was a masterpiece for an excellent Norwegian team, finishing 5 of the top six. Russia’s Sergei Ostjogo prevented a five-fold victory in Norway as he finished third. For Krueger, it was his seventh World Cup win overall and his second in a row after winning at Lillehammer a week ago.
Norway also leads among women
In the women’s category, Nadine Vanderich couldn’t match her impressive result on Saturday (second place in the sprint). The Lucerne woman finished 30th in the 10km ski run, eventually being 1:22.7 minutes behind her best time.
There is no grass against Thérèse Juhaug. And the Norwegian achieved her forty-second victory in the World Cup with a time of 24: 52.4 minutes. She also took 79th place on the podium for 33-year-old players. Jesse Diggins (USA) and Frida Karlsson (Sweden) completed the podium.
