Switzerland’s Amelie Reymond secured a second victory in as many days at the International Ski Federation (FIS) Telemark World Championships after winning the women’s classic event in French resort La Plagne.
Fresh from triumphing in yesterday’s women’s parallel sprint, the 29-year-old clocked a time of 1min 52.75sec to beat nearest challenger Argeline Tan Bouquet of France by 8.44sec.
Tan Bouquet also finished runner-up to Reymond in the women’s parallel sprint.
Great Britain’s Jasmin Taylor rounded out today’s podium, ending up 9.61 off the pace.
In the men’s classic event, Stefan Matter posted a time of 1:58.14 to lead a Swiss one-two ahead of Bastien Dayer.
Dayer finished 0.51 back, while Germany’s Tobias Mueller was 0.74 behind in third.
Action in La Plagne is due to conclude tomorrow with the men’s and women’s sprint events.
The telemark discipline features elements of both Alpine and Nordic skiing.
