Randall sprints to cross-country victory
Kikkan Randall won her second consecutive freestyle sprint event on the cross-country World Cup in Poland, underlining her status as a medal favorite in Sochi.
The American held off Denise Herrmann on the final straightaway in following up on her victory in the Czech Republic a week ago.
Randall, last season’s sprint World Cup champion, said that “coming to the finish I actually had lots of energy in my legs because my big move for the win was on the home stretch.”
