Oberstdorf, GER.-Beckie Scott’s podium streak came to an end at six on Sunday, but she didn’t go down without a fight in Oberstdorf, Germany.
The Olympic champion, who has taken the world by storm in World Cup cross-country skiing this year, finished fifth in the women’s sprint.
“I didn’t have a very good qualification run, but I managed to squeak into the top-30,” said Scott, who qualified in 21st spot. “It was very difficult waxing conditions with warm temperatures and new snow, so it was pretty stressful all day trying to get the right wax. After the qualifier I just told myself not to waste the opportunity, and I am happy with a fifth place result today.”
