After a day off, the women were back on the course for the 7.5-km sprint competition on Jan. 19.

First place went to Russian Victoria Slivko with a time of 21 minutes and 29.7 seconds.

Ingela Andersson of Sweden was 16.7 seconds back in second place and Norway’s Ragnhild Femsteinevik was 19.0 seconds behind Slivko in third.

Moser cracked the top 30 in the sprint, finishing 29th, just one minute and 38.6 seconds behind the race winner.

Dickson was three minutes and 4.4 seconds off the winning pace in 56th place.

Women’s competition wrapped up with a 10-km pursuit on Jan. 20, where Moser was again in the top 30.
