Today the women’s 10 km freestyle were settled in a snowy Swedish Falun. After a few skiers had started the weather started to get worse and the snow poured down. The home-favourite Charlotte Kalla was in the lead after the first checkpoint and her Norwegian rivals started a few minutes after her. However, it seems like Björgen, Johaug and Weng had glue under their skis today because they never had a chance against Kalla. Instead it was two american skiers who had second and third best time. Not many of us thought that this would hold throughout the competition but it did. No one could threat Charlotte Kalla today though. Best Norwegian was Heidi Weng who finished 22nd, almost two minutes behind Kalla. Therese Johaug finished 27th and all-time ski-queen Marit Björgen 31st.
1) Charlotte Kalla, Sweden 25.08
2) Jessica Diggins, USA +41
3) Caitlin Cregg, USA +46,9
4) Maria Rydqvist, Sweden +48,6
22) Heidi Weng, Norway +1.51,9
27) Therese Johaug, Norway +2.14.0
31) Marit Björgen, Norway +2.23,6
33) Astrid Jacobsen, Norway +2.32,4
Tomorrow we look forward to the men’s 15 km freestyle. Hopefully the Norwegians has switched from glue to rocket fuel under the skis!
