Russian skier takes first place at Tour de Ski

Russian skier Alexander Bolshunov has recently taken a silver medal at a the final mass-start event of the Tour de Ski, and won the competition on 10th January, which finished in Valle-di-Fiemme in Italy.

The result of Bolshunov at the tournament shows a total of 3 hours and 32.3 seconds, whilst the second place was taken by the frenchman Maurice Manificat, taking 3 minutes and 23.9 seconds longer. The bronze medal was awarded to Denis Spitsov, another Russian skier, who took the place with a 3 minutes and 36.7 second gap to Bolshunov.

This is the second time that Bolshunov has been able to win the tournament. Only two other Russians have been honoured to achieve the same – Sergey Ustyugov in the 2016/17 season and Alexander Legkov in the 2012/13 season.
