Maja Dahlqvist capped a successful weekend in Dresden by bringing Sweden I home to victory in the women's team sprint.

Dahlqvist, who has won all four solo sprint events on the International Ski Federation (FIS) Cross-Country World Cup schedule so far this season, including yesterday's race, teamed up with the runner-up from 24 hours ago, Jonna Sundling.

The duo proved unstoppable, going fastest in the semi-finals and then so too the final.

United States I - Jessie Diggins and Julia Kern - were 1.11sec back to finish second, with Eva Urevc and Anamarija Lampič's Slovenia I an additional 0.10 back in third place.

Norway sent an under-strength men's squad to the FIS Cross-Country World Cup event in Dresden city itself, on the banks of the Elbe, yet still claimed a one-two.

Norway II won, representing maiden World Cup wins for Thomas Helland Larsen and Even Northug.

Norway I, comprising yesterday's solo victor Håvard Solås Taugbøl and Sindre Bjørnestad Skar, were 0.42 back in second place.

Alexander Bolshunov and Gleb Retivykh's Russia I claimed the final podium place.

Racing took place with fans present because of Saxony's coronavirus rules.

The skiers now have a 10-day break before the Tour de Ski begins in Lenzerheide on December 28.
