Norway’s Johannes Thingnes Boe finished the Oslo Holmenkollen men’s 10 km sprint exactly like finished every other sprint this season, in first place. Today’s one-penalty, wire-to-wire win in 25:13 gave the man wearing the Yellow/Red Bib sprint victory number eight for a clean sweep of the 2022/23 BMW IBU World Cup season. As has been the case all season, once JT set the bar after the standing stage, no one was able to come close to his stunning ski speed on the last loop; this time adding 16 seconds to his lead, guaranteeing victory. Regarding his seventeenth win of the season, JT added, “My mindset is very strong. I am aiming for a victory in every race and that helps me a lot on the track. When you are tired you just push hard and hopefully take the win.” Sweden’s Martin Ponsiluoma shot clean in second place, 23.9 seconds back. Germany’s Benedikt Doll also shot clean in third place, 28.9 seconds back.
