Cross Countrty: Second gold to Bjørgen at Lahti

Norway's Marit Bjørgen won gold in the women's World Cup 10km classic cross country race at Lahti, Finland on Sunday, ahead of compatriot Heidi Weng. Sweden's Charlotte Kalla placed third.

 

Bjørgen also won Saturday's sprint, and also leads the sprint World Cup standings by 40 points with just one race remaining, the 34-year-old admits she is targeting a famous treble.

Norway's Martin Johnsrud Sundby could only finish tenth on the men's 15km on Sunday but that was enough for him to wrap up his second consecutive overall World Cup title.
