Alexander Bolshunov made it three successive distance World Cup wins in a row as he finished first in the 15km freestyle race in Falun.

The Russian cross-country skier followed up wins in the 15km race in Cogne, and the 50km in Oslo, with victory here ahead of Norway's Martin Johnsrud Sundby, with fellow Norwegian Didrik Toenseth third.

That was enough to close the gap on overall World Cup leader Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo to just 14 points.
