Adverse weather conditions may have altered the format of today’s International Ski Federation Nordic Combined World Cup in Otepää, but there was no change at the top of the standings.

Norwegian pair Jarl Magnus Riiber and Gyda Westvold Hansen swept to success in the Estonian town to make it three victories on the trot.

Ski jumping was due to take place this morning, only for the jury to make a change to the programme at short notice due to the windy conditions.

Instead of the individual Gundersen, cross-country skiers lined up in a mass start event at the Tehvandi Stadium.

There was a tight battle in the women’s event, with just 10sec separating the top eight athletes in the mass start.

Ida Marie Hagen of Norway prevailed in 13min 45.9sec ahead of compatriot Marte Leinan Lund and German Cindy Haasch.

Hansen, who was fourth in the mass start, then came out on top in the ski jumping round with the furthest jump of the day of 94 metres to claim victory with 113.8 points.

Hagen landed a jump of 85m to take second spot, worth 93.4, as Japan’s Yuna Kasai climbed from 12th to seal bronze with 84.9.

In the men’s event, Riiber came first in the mass start as he crossed the finish line in 23:27.2.

Germany’s Vinzenz Geiger placed second in 23.27.7 as Norway’s Jørgen Graabak was 0.06 further behind in third.

While Geiger and Graabak faltered in the ski jumping round, Riiber sealed victory with a jump of 96m to total 123.6 points.

Espen Bjørnstad of Norway moved from 15th position to take silver on 110.1, while Germany’s Manuel Faißt came third on 106.4.
