The women’s World Cup clearly belonged to Therese Johaug* of Norway, and the abrupt ending of the season did not change that in any way. The phenomenal winter sports competitor celebrated 17 Word Cup wins alongside her Tour de Ski title and convincingly skied away with the Overall World Cup as well as the Distance World Cup. Just behind her in second and third place were Norway’s Heidi Weng* and Russia’s Natalia Nepryaeva*. After missing the start of the season with health issues, Ingvild Flugstad Østberg* of Norway came back strongly to earn a fifth place finish. Linn Svahn** of Sweden took the title of Fastest Sprinter in her very first complete World Cup season. Three individual wins gave her the small crystal globe in the Sprint Word Cup ahead of Jonna Sundling** of Sweden, Anamarija Lampic* of Slovenia, Maiken Caspersen Falla* of Norway, and Natalia Nepryaeva*.
Johannes Høsflot Klæbo* of Norway was unbeatable in Word Cup sprints in the 19l20 season. Eight victories in eight starts earned him the small crystal globe as Best Sprinter for the fourth time in succession, well ahead of Norway’s Erik Valnes*. The young Norwegian star took second place in the Overall World Cup. Iivo Niskanen* of Finland and Hans Christer Holund* of Norway had successful finishes to their first seasons on Fischer equipment, taking sixth and seventh place.
The cancellation of the final races in Scandinavia of the VISMA Ski Classics series was an abrupt end to an overall very successful season for the Fischer Race Family in long distance racing. Britta Johansson Norgren (Lager 157 Ski Team)*, Kari Vikhagen Gjeitnes (Team Koteng)* and Katerina Smutna (ED System Bauer Team)* made it a clean sweep in the overall women’s standings. On the men’s side, Andreas Nygaard (Team Ragde Eiendom)* repeated as overall champion, followed by teammate Tord Asle Gjerdalen*. Fischer athletes took the remaining seven spots in places four through ten.
