Sports, Cross-country skiing | Kristine Stavås Skistad won in Lahti – took her fifth straight sprint victory

Kristine Stavå’s Skistad was the best in the women’s sprint final in Lahti on Saturday. In the prologue she came second behind Sweden’s Jonna Sundling, but in the final it was the Konnerud girl who was supremely best.

After the sprint match against the Swedish girl, Skistad could stretch her arms in the air for her fifth straight sprint victory in the World Cup. She stuck with the heavier party and pipped Sundling to victory with a margin of 13 hundredths of a second.

It should be mentioned that Skistad did not have a single podium place in the World Cup until 2023. Since the new year, there have been a total of five victories for the runner who does not have a place in the national team.

– She probably has a bit to think about before next season now, said Viaplay commentator Jørn Sundby, referring to Sundling.

Tiril Udnes Weng took third place in the classic sprint in Lahti and thereby secured the overall victory in the World Cup.

Nest best i prologen

Jonna Sundling was fastest in the prologue, while six Norwegian runners progressed to the qualifying rounds.

Not unexpectedly, Sundling was number one in the finish line and Kristine Stavås Skistad number two. The two have been by far the fastest in sprints in recent months.

Tiril Udnes Weng finished sixth in the prologue and earned five bonus points that could help her win the World Cup overall. Second in the summary, Jessie Diggins, was tenth and received one bonus point.

Anna Svendsen, Hedda Østberg Amundsen, Ane Appelkvist Stenseth and Julie Myhre also progressed from the prologue. Lotta Udnes Weng was knocked out, as she was in Tallinn earlier in the week.
