|KUUSAMO, Finland (Dec. 1) - |
Petra Majdic of Slovenia won the women's sprint ahead of Astrid Jacobsen, Norway's sprint world champion. Kikkan Randall (Anchorage, AK) was 16th.
"It was a pretty good day," Head Coach Pete Vordenberg said. "Andy got stuck behind a couple of dudes at a key moment on that last uphill, but he skied well. Kikkan skied well, too, and for being sick most of the week, Torin skied 98 percent of really well and then died. But Torin laid it out there, and for someone only a little while out of bed, it was an outstanding effort."
