*Earlier today, the Swedish Ski Association updated the men’s list for the World Cup in Toblach with the addition of Björn Sandström:
“After analyzing the situation before the competitions coming this weekend, we believe that we need to have another men’s skier in place to ensure that we have enough starters during each day. That’s why we bring the Swedish Championships winner Björn Sandström to Toblach,” says the National Team Manager Anders Byström.
Sandström travels to Toblach on Thursday and will compete in Saturday’s distance race.
“He will primarily start the 10km race on Saturday but will also be available for the relay on Sunday,” concludes Anders Byström.
