World Cup 2015 review – no change at the top

Posted on | October 12, 2015 | Category: News

Tove Alexandersson, Sweden and Daniel Hubmann, Switzerland finished at the head of the 2015 World Cup standings, just as they did in 2014. Hubmann’s victory was outstanding, with four wins from the ten counting races and a points lead of 234. Alexandersson ran in seven of the races and won the first three.

The only other woman with more than one World Cup win in 2015 was Ida Bobach DEN with two. The other race winners were Maja Alm DEN, Annika Billstam SWE, Helena Jansson SWE, Anne Margrethe Hausken Nordberg NOR and Cat Taylor GBR. Sara Luescher SUI finished second overall, 7 places up on 2014, the reward for a consistent season – she ran in all the races. The biggest improver amongst the top six women was Emma Johansson SWE, at the age of 34 enjoying her best season ever and finishing 5th; her 2014 position was 52nd. Nadiya Volynska UKR and Sabine Hauswirth SUI also showed significant improvement on last year.

In contrast to the women, the men’s victories were shared between just four athletes. Daniel Hubmann’s compatriot Matthias Kyburz won 3 times and finished second overall; the other wins were by Thierry Gueorgiou FRA (2) and Jonas Leandersson SWE (1). The Norwegian Olav Lundanes ended in third place, with his fellow-countryman Magne Dæhli finishing 5th, 5 places better than in 2014. Gustav Bergman improved from 7th in 2014 to 4th this year.

IOF World Rankings

In the IOF World Rankings, based on all IOF World Ranking Events, top positions are currently held by Ida Bobach and – of course – Daniel Hubmann. Bobach has a narrow lead over Tove Alexandersson, and there is then a larger gap down to Judith Wyder SUI. The men’s scores are much closer with just 94 points separating the top 5. Another Dane, Maja Alm and, yes, Daniel Hubmann head the IOF Sprint World rankings. In both sets of rankings Switzerland has three men in the top six.
