Seefeld World Nordic Championships #3


Catching up with a few days of racing at Seefeld. Above, Norway’s Therese Johaug exults after winning the women’s 15-k skiathlon. She had been suspended (in a baffling move by ski authorities) from competition for 18 months for using a lip cream that contained a steroid, and, in her first world championship since, she was ready to strike back. Below, Sweden’s Maja Dahlqvist embracing teammate Stina Nilsson after the two won the team sprint; the US’s Jessie Diggins is in the background. The rest are from the skiathlon and team sprint.
