We will update the results here.

Holmenkollen World Cup history

Year after year, Martin Johnsrud Sundby has been a true success in the Holmenkollen 50 km competition. He has been ranked in the top three in Holmenkollen as many as seven times in a row (2012-2018). Sundby has won the competition twice (2016 and 2017). With seven prize places, Sundby is totally in his own league.

Marit Björgen has been even better than Sundby on Holmenkollen’s long-distance. Of the eight Holmenkollen 30 km competitions of the 2010s, Björgen won six and did not participate in the other two. In addition, Björgen holds the 2005 Holmenkollen victory. Therese Johaug has accompanied Björgen strongly, having won in Holmenkollen three times in the 2010s, been second three times and third twice.

In the season of 2019, the Russians shocked the Norwegians by taking a quadruple victory in the men’s royal sprint, led by Alexander Bolshunov. Bolshunov was also the strongest in the season of 2020. For the women, it was a huge surprise when Frida Karlsson skied to victory in the women’s competition, leaving Johaug behind.
