Full Coverage of Kikkan Randall's Recent World Cup Win in Liberec

Kick back and enjoy - actually sit on the edge of your seat and enjoy full coverage of Kikkan's recent World Cup win!



Kikkan Randall is the first American female to win a World Cup XC Ski Race, which was back in 2007 in Rybinsk, Russia.  The only other American XC Skier to ever win a World Cup was the great Bill Koch.

This past weekend in Liberec, Czech Republic, Kikkan conquered the world once again, winning yet another World Cup Sprint race in impressive fashion.  This is truly an exciting era for American XC skiing!

Kikkan won a silver World Cup medal back in 2009 on this very course.  In an interview with the US Ski Team, Randall said knowing the course was a big plus. "I've done well here before, and knowing the course - its twists and turns - was a huge help."

It was a tough day at the races with a wet and icy course.  Rain was falling for much of the day, especially during the qualifying rounds. 

In an interviewer with Fasterskier.com following the race, a satisfied Randall commented “I just thought about getting through one round at a time.”  She went on to say that “it was pretty cool to be able to have the time to enjoy the win.”  Wrapping up, she commented that “I think the best is still to come.”

Congratulations to Kikkan and the US Ski Team for the amazing results in recent years.  Days like this are momentous for American Nordic skiers.  Decades from now, we will remember the day that Kikkan won the World Cup in the Czech Republic!
