Norway’s men

Norway’s Kasper Fosser won his third gold medal of the championships, bringing the Norwegian team in to the finish with a 2.09 lead over Sweden 2. 

At the end of the first leg in the men’s Relay, which started first, five nations – Switzerland, Sweden, France, Czech Republic and Norway – established a 1-minute lead over all others. France came into the second changeover ahead by 8 seconds over Norway 1 and Sweden 2, but Fosser quickly caught up the Frenchman and began to pull away half-way though his race. He navigated the tricky final loop after the spectator passage without any loss of time and took a clean victory to retain the Relay men’s title.
