Alexandersson and Kyburz head World Cup standings

Posted on | August 28, 2017 | Category: Arena, News

Tove Alexandersson, Sweden and Matthias Kyburz, Switzerland are the current leaders in the 2017 World Cup with two competitions remaining. Sweden leads in the Relay World Cup.

With four wins and one second place in the eight races held so far, Alexandersson is well set to retain her World Cup title; she has a good lead over Natalia Gemperle, Russia who has won one race and finished second three times. Maja Alm, Denmark is third from just five races – she has won two and come second once.

The situation in the men’s list is tighter; race top-placings have been spread over a greater number of athletes.  Kyburz has established a good lead without having won a single race! Martin Regborn, Sweden is second with one win and four fourth-places, and two athletes tie for third place – Daniel Hubmann, Switzerland and Olav Lundanes, Norway.

The present standings are calculated as the best seven from the eight races held. Points from both of the final races will count for the final standings and will be added to the present scores, so the two last races – a Long and a Middle at Grindelwald, Switzerland on 29th and 30th September – will be very keenly contested.

 

Sweden way ahead in Relay World Cup

A Sprint Relay on 1st October rounds off the international season. Six races counting for the Relay World Cup have been held so far, and the final standings will be the sum of the best six out of the total seven scores. Sweden has had an outstanding season so far with four wins, and a score of 540 out of a possible 600; they will without doubt be looking to finish on a high in the final race. Hoping to retain second place will be Switzerland, and Russia and Norway will be fighting hard for third place overall.
