Krista Lahteenmaki of Finland is the new Junior World Champion in the 5 km Classic race in Notshrei, Germany. Second in the finish was Ingvild Flugstad Oestberg. Bronze goes to Sweden to Hanna Brodin.
I am so happy about my victory. It was a tough fast race. I started a bit slower form the start and ten build up speed and get into rhythm. We ideal conditions today and course was just perfect!

I must admit I was little bit disappointed with my second place today. I was in the lead and gained some sconds but I lost everything in last kilometres. Now I am happy. Silver medal is valuable as well. I like the course here very much. There are uphills and downhill. That suits me perfectly. I plan to start on Friday and on Sunday as well.
I am very happy with bronze medal. I felt in the beginning of the race little bit tired after the sprint race. But then I got my rhythm and succeeded. It was a great day for me!
