Johannes Klaebo wins the Drammen sprint, Richard Jouve 3rd



Johannes Klaebo easily dominated the sprint in Drammen (Norway) on Tuesday in 2’31”68 in an almost 100% Norwegian final, which had five Norwegians out of six available places. Imperial in the home straight, he left his opponents no chance to afford his 37th victory in a World Cup sprint. In four appearances in Drammen, the 26-year-old athlete has won each time.

His compatriot Erik Valnes (+1’79) finished second. Richard Jouve resisted against the horde of Norwegians and finished on the last step of the podium (+2’13). He had also finished in first position in his semi-final ahead of three Norwegians, including Even Northug (+0’2). Thanks to this third place, he won his third podium of the winter.

Frenchman Lucas Chavanat, the only non-Norwegian in his semi-final, did not qualify for the final with his time of 2’23”50, +2’91 from Johannes Klaebo’s fastest time.

In the women’s category, Kristine Stavaas Skistad, who won the sprint in Les Rousses last January, won in 2’49”39 ahead of Jonna Sundling (+1’22) and her compatriot and leader of the general classification, Tiril Udnes Weng (+1’83).
