Anamaria Lampič wins small Crystal Globe for cross-country sprint World Cup

By: P.T.,STA

Slovenian cross-country skier Anamarija Lampič has been awarded the small crystal globe as the overall World Cup winner in the women’s sprint discipline as the International Ski Federation (FIS) decided to cut the season short after seven sprint events being held, with Lampič leading the standings.

After seven World Cup sprint events, the Slovenian has 402 points, well ahead of Nadine Faehndrich of Switzerland (296) and Linn Svahn of Sweden (275).

Lampič is only second Slovenian ever to win a small crystal globe in the Cross-Country World Cup, after Petra Majdič won it in the sprint discipline three times – in 2008, 2009 and 2011. Her previous best was third place last season.

The 25-year-old, who was declared the 2020 Slovenian female athlete of the year, will also be one of the main favourites at the Nordic World Ski Championships, which opened today in Germany’s Oberstdorf.

She will appear in her first competition in Oberstdorf on Thursday as the women’s classic sprint is on schedule.

“Medal is the goal. Only that counts at world championships. I will not be very devastated if I don’t get it, but I will do everything to at least make it to the finals, and then a podium finish will be possible,” Lampič said.

Lampič, who was second in the World Cup sprint event at the same course last year, is coming off a World Cup win in team sprint in pair with Eva Urevc in Sweden on 7 February. The pair was also third in a December World Cup race in Dresden.
