The Ski Mountaineering Sprint Race World Cup and Continental titles assigned at Les Marécottes.

A grand finale was staged at Les Marécottes with the Sprint Race of the third ISMF Ski Mountaineering World Cup event. Today the athletes competed on the Swiss snow of Les Marécottes to win precious World Cup points and the last 2016 Continental titles still unassigned.

After the Vertical and Individual races, today it was the turn of the most exciting and fastest event in the programme. In the Senior category, after the qualifier round and breath-taking showdowns the Italian Robert Antonioli and the French Laetitia Roux were crowned continental champions. The former had the better of two Swiss contestants, namely Iwan Arnold and Martin Anthamatten.

Laetitia Roux, after a forced hiatus due to a stress-induced injury, became the new European champion ahead of Marta Garcia Farres and Nahia Quincoces Altuna, both from Spain.
The Espoir race went to Anton Palzer (Germany) ahead of Oriol Cardona Coll (Spain) and Nadir Maguet (Italy). Marianne Fatton (Switzerland) has won the race ahead of Inka Belles Naudi (Andorra) and Johanna Erhart (Austria).
Among the Cadets the best contestant turned out to be Florian Ulrich (Switzerland) who crossed the finish line much ahead of the Austrian Jakob Siedler and the Italian Daniele Corazza. Among the women, the French ace Justine Tonso finished ahead of Ekaterina Osichkina (Russia) and Emilie Farquet (Switzerland).
The Junior race was hard fought with Thomas Corthay (Switzerland) finishing ahead of Davide Magnini (Italy) and Simon Bellabouvier (France).  As regards the Junior women challenge Adèle Milloz, from France, got to wear gold around her neck after finishing before Lena Bonnel, also from France, and Giulia Compagnoni (Italy).
The Espoir race went to Anton Palzer (Germany) ahead of Oriol Cardona Coll (Spain) and Nadir Maguet (Italy). Marianne Fatton (Switzerland) has won the race ahead of Inka Belles Naudi (Andorra) and Johanna Erhart (Austria).
This concludes the third even and the continental tests; the ISMF Ski Mountaineering World Cup will be back in two weeks with the Transcavallo Individual Race and Sprint Race on Italian snow at Alpago and Piancavallo.
