Federico Pellegrino wins silver in the Sprint Classic
- Published: 13 February 2018
He fought and fought, and in the end, he won out. The silver medal that Federico Pellegrino won today is further proof of a great champion. In the cross-country sprint, in his lesser-preferred classic technique, the Italian utilised his every resource, every tactic, every minimal retreat of his opponents, anything to reach the podium. And he did it.
The gold medal was won by Norwegian Klaebo in 3'05"75, but Federico, at a photo finish, defeated OAR athlete Bolshunov with 3'07"09 against 3'07"11.
