Major World Cup weekend on two c

   It was another major winter sport weekend last weekend. The FIS Cross-Country World Cup presented by Viessmann returned to Otepää (EST) for a pair of classical technique races. More than 10'000 people came to see the Tour de Ski winners Justyna Kowalczyk (POL) and Dario Cologna (SUI) continue to showcase their excellent form and win both Saturday's sprint and Sunday's individual start competitions. In Petter Northug's absence, Cologna grew his points lead to 294 in the overall rankings whilst Kowalczyk still trails Marit Bjoergen in the ladies' standings.

   In Zakopane (POL), local hero Kamil Stoch claimed his second career victory in front of the home audience on Friday. In Saturday's second Bauhaus FIS Ski Jumping World Cup presented by Viessmann, 22-year-old Austrian Gregor Schlierenzauer claimed the 39th World Cup victory of his career, matching Polish legend Adam Malysz. The lead for the most career wins is held by Matti Nykänen (FIN) with 46. In the World Cup overall standings, Schlierenzauer sits in 2nd, 39 points behind teammate Andreas Kofler.

The FIS Ski Jumping World Cup ladies presented by Viessmann and the DKB FIS Nordic Combined World Cup presented by Rauch both had a weekend off.
