Cross-country skier Lampič victorious in Val di Fiemme
Val di Fiemme, 4 January - Slovenian cross-country skier Anamarija Lampič dominated the World Cup freestyle sprint event in Val di Fiemme, Italy, on Saturday in what was her third World Cup win.
The second place went to Norwegian Astrid Jacobsen and third to Jessica Diggins from the US.
"I'm very happy ... This was really an excellent day for me. My plan was to stay in the back and attack on the last hill," Lampič told the press after the race.
The Val di Fiemme sprint was the penultimate of the Tour de Ski series, the highlight of the World Cup season, which ends on Sunday.
Lampič is now in the lead in the series' sprint events with 75 points, and has climbed from the tenth to seventh place overall.
She rejoiced at her first World Cup victory in February 2017 and her second in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, last Sunday.
