Federico Pellegrino can still do it

The Italian Federico Pellegrino proved at the Tour de Ski in Davos that he is still one of the fastest cross-country skiers in the world.

Pellegrino has been one of the fastest sprinters in the cross-country skiing circuit for around a decade. In recent years, the 33-year-old has also developed into a strong distance runner under the leadership of coach Marcus Cramer. He proved on Wednesday evening in Davos (Switzerland) that he is still one of the crème della crème in freestyle sprinting. Pellegrino only had to admit defeat to Toblach winner Lucas Chanavat (France) and surprise man Advin Anger (Sweden) and ended up in third place.

Pellegrino is now in third place in the overall tour standings. The Aosta native is 25 seconds behind the leader Harald Oestberg Amundsen. Second is Erik Valnes (also from Norway). Dietmar Nöckler was no longer there at the finals in Davos. The man from Bruneck got stuck in the qualification in 72nd place.

Federica Sanfilippo showed the best times in qualifying with 15th place. In the quarter-finals, however, the woman from Ridnaun had no chance of progressing. In the end, the former biathlete took 27th place. Victory once again went to Swede Linn Svahn, who became the first woman to win four sprint stages in the Tour de Ski. Tour leader Jessie Diggins (USA) came third.
