The points gained by Diggins allowed her to jump into second place in the overall World Cup standings (and only 40 points from first!), with Bjornsen finishing 6th. The men's 15K race was not quite as exciting as the field let Russian Alexander Bolshunov ski away with the victory. However, Canada's Alex Harvey outsprinted the chase pack to take second, with Switzerland's Dario Cologna third. Norway's Johannes Klaebo and Heidi Weng win the overall World Cup titles.

World Cup Oslo Freestyle Marathon
March 11, 2018
Two days of epic World Cup freestyle marathon races at the famed Holmenkollen venue in Oslo, Norway concluded on Sunday. In Saturday's mens 50K freestyle, a lead pack of half dozen men were still in contention in the final kilometers as the race came down to a sprint finish between Dario Cologna, Switzerland, and Norway's own Martin Sundby, which required a photo review to find Cologna had won by the narrowest of margins. Sunday's womens 30K was even more exciting as Jessie Diggins threw it down almost from the start, shattering the field and taking off with the Sweden's Charlotte Kalla and Norway's Ragnhild Haga. That lead trio stayed away for much of the rest, but in the final kilometers the legend, the queen, Marit Bjoergen stormed back up to the leaders (with the assistance of some fast skis from a ski exchange), then pushed head to snatch the victory with Diggins fending off the rest of the field to take second, Haga third in a photo finish with Kalla. The US squad had a number of great results including Sadie Bjornsen 12th and Scott Patterson 16th.
