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).
