In the women's final, three Norwegians, two Swedes and one Swiss fought for victory and podium places. The leader of the Sprint World Cup Linn Svahn (SWE, Fischer **) didn't made the cut into the final in eighth place after she had once again clashed with Jonna Sundling and once again showed her evil eye - as always when something does not work. Anamarija Lampic (SLO, Fischer ***) was eliminated in the quarter-finals as 17th. Maiken Caspersen Falla mostly dominated the final, but Jonna Sundling kept fighting with her for the lead. The two went on the home stretch almost together, but the Swede could no longer catch the Norwegian, so Falla lived up to her role as favorite in the classic sprint. "It feels like World Championships with so many people shouting your name. It's a great atmosphere and I'm happy to be here. It was some tough distance races for me, but I'm happy that I'm still in the Tour and can enjoy this atmosphere", she said. Anna Dyvik (SWE, Fischer ***) took fourth place ahead of Anna Svendsen (NOR, Fischer ***) and Heidi Weng (NOR, Fischer ***). Therese Johaug (NOR, Fischer ***) made it to the semifinals and secured ninth place, Ingvild Flugstad Østberg (NOR, Fischer ***) failed in the quarterfinals and was only 22nd. In the overall standings because of the large gaps there is not a big difference: Weng made up seconds on Østberg, so that both start the handicap race together, 2:33 seconds behind Johaug.
