Cross-country skiing: Kläbo and Niskanen rise to the favorites in Falun

Norway once again set men’s style at the infamous Mörderbakken in Falun, Sweden, over 10km in classic technique. The Norwegian team led by Johannes Klabo celebrated a four-way victory, and Martin Ninget (+10.7) and Harald Amundsen (+20.7) held onto the lead against Pal Gulberg in the team’s indoor podium battle. It was already the 15th victory of the season for the World Cup leader Klapoo. Swiss Cyril Fondrich (38), Candide Bralong (45) and Beda Klee (50) missed a potential exploitation opportunity.

In the women’s race, Kerttu Niskanen celebrated her fifth World Cup win. The Finnish athlete prevailed in the 10-kilometer classic, which is her best style, 16 seconds ahead of Germany’s Katarina Hennig. Third place goes to Ann Calva from Norway (+31.6). The hosts missed out on the podium, with Jonah Sundling finishing fifth behind Jesse Diggins (USA). However, a number of Swedish cross-country skiers were absent, including the highly decorated Frida Carlsson and Ebba Andersson: they were absent due to the cold. At first there were no Swiss.

Biathlon: canceling the women’s sprint race

After the women’s race at the World Cup Final in Oslo was initially postponed due to poor visibility, the competition was canceled outright on short notice. As announced by the IBU World Federation, the race will now take place on Saturday, so the follow-up race planned for the day has been cancelled.
