Anamarija Lampič wins cross-country sprint bronze at world championships

Slovenian cross-country skier Anamarija Lampič won the bronze medal in the women’s classical sprint at the Nordic World Ski Championships, missing out on the silver medal by a mere 0.02 seconds. The gold went to Jonna Sundling of Sweden, who was followed by Maiken Caspersen Falla of Norway (+2.32 seconds). This is a second world championships medal for Lampič, coming after the silver in the team sprint in 2019. Lampič, the 2020 Slovenian female athlete of the year, has already been awarded the small crystal globe as the overall World Cup winner in sprint as the season has been cut short.
