Norway wins both World Cup Sprint Relays today.
Marit Bjorgen anchored their Women’s team to victory by using her famous V1 uphill jump skate to get away from Germany’s Kuentzel. Hilde Pedersen was the second skier on Norway’s team.
Norway with Tor Arne Hetland and Haavard Bjerkeli came back from last place after crashing on the first leg to overtake Sweden at the finish line.
The men's US team did not advance in the semifinal round. The German men's team (originally in 9th place) diqualified for not marking all their skis.
