Cross-country skiing ” The Grison did not perform in his best light during the Kuusamo minitour in Finland.

Kuusamo’s minitour ended in a disappointing way for the Swiss team after Friday’s two top 10 sprint. Dario Cologna and Nadine Fähndrich fell short of expectations after the chase. Cologna finished 30th in the pursuit (15 km), dominating his teammate Beda Klee in the photo-finish. The four-time Olympic champion failed to catch up on 29th place because of the pace too high for him. In the Arctic Circle, Cologna finally got a good 38th place in the sprint. It was much more complicated in the endurance races, although Kuusamo has never been a stage that the 34-year-old Grison likes. Cologna should be better in two weeks in Davos and for the Tour de ski at the end of the year. ats
