Sweden's Charlotte Kalla and Peter Northug of Norway won Inge Braten's memorial in Sunne.
Petter Northug impressed 12.000 spectators by a strong performance both in semifinals and then in "Norwegian-only" finals. Ragnar Bragvin Andresen went for second place as Tord Asle Gjerdalen finished third. "He [Petter Northug] is very smart and fights his way to places you would not believe. Suddenly he got 20 meters and it was impossible to take him again," Bragvin Andresen commented Northug's performance on langrenn.com.
Charlotte Kalla pleased local fans as she stormed for victory on the ladies' side ahead of Ida Ingemarsdotter and surprise of the day, youngster Maja Dahlquist.
