Anchorage skier Kikkan Randall won her second skate sprint World Cup race of the season on Sunday in Davos, Switzerland. She qualified in first place, swept every heat and then won by a commanding 1.7 seconds. The Alaska Pacific University skier is now ranked number one for World Cup sprint races and number 3 overall.
Her APU teammate Holly Brooks also had a great weekend, placing 13th in the 15 kilometer skate event on Saturday.
In a press release, the U.S. Women’s nordic coach Matt Whitcomb said, “It’s a true testament to hard and smart work done by APU Nordic. As we search the country for the next World Cup skier it is comforting to know that APU is hard at work milling its current and future generation.”
Randall has her next chance to win Sunday during the skate sprint in Slovenia.
