1-second victory margins in knock-out sprint

As anticipated, the knock-out sprint in Sigtuna today was thrilling to the last, with the lead changing several times in the Final and at the end one-second victories for Emma Klingenberg, Denmark and Fabian Hertner, Switzerland.

21-year-old Emma Klingenberg is marking herself out as a knock-out sprint specialist; she won the equivalent race in Gothenburg in the 2012 World Cup too. A cool head as well as speed was needed in the complex terrain of small streets and bits of forest park in Sigtuna near Stockholm, and Emma provided both to full capacity as she came in to beat Simone Niggli, who won the qualification race in the morning, by 1 second. Simone’s compatriot Judith Wyder was right behind, 1 second down again.

Fabian Hertner, Switzerland was also a 1-second winner and there was a tie for second place between Øystein Kvaal Østerbø, Norway and Swiss sprint star Matthias Kyburz. Hertner also won the qualification race, but got into the final only as a ‘lucky loser’ as he finished third in his semi-final. The men’s qualification was notable for absolute Swiss dominance – the fastest 6 were all Swiss and they had 7 in the first 9 – but only 3 of them made it to the final.

The Nordic Tour now moves on to Turku, Finland, for another sprint race on Friday and a long distance race with chasing start on Saturday.
