World Cup: titles go to Daniel Hubmann and Helena Jansson

Posted on | October 2, 2011 | Category: News

Men’s World Cup 2011 top three on the podium.

Daniel Hubmann concluded a splendid season in style, winning the PostFinance Sprint by 5 seconds ahead of Jerker Lysell to secure his fourth successive World Cup title by a huge margin. Minna Kauppi won the women’s Sprint today by 7 seconds, but Helena Jansson’s third place was enough to secure her the overall title for the first time.

Daniel Hubmann again proved to be the best of the large Swiss men’s contingent, four of them making it into the top six. This means also four Swiss in the top six in the final overall standings – Daniel plus three times Matthias: Merz, Kyburz and Müller. Thierry Gueorgiou finished in second place overall and Pasi Ikonen sixth.

Minna Kauppi has had a very successful second half of the European season, but missed out by 20 points in the overall standings and takes second place. Lena Eliasson finished second in the race today and is third overall, just 2 points fewer than Minna Kauppi. Annika Billstam, leader in the overall standings before today, was still suffering from illness and although she took part today, she made a big mistake and ended well down. She finishes fourth overall, ahead of Maja Alm and Dana Brozkova.

The women’s Sprint was also notable for a fine performance from a young Great Britain runner – Tessa Hill placed fourth, only 12 seconds down on the winning time. Maja Alm was fifth and Galina Vinogradova sixth in the race.
