  • Description

    In the pre-Olympic trials at Seefeld, Austria, the Finnish women's team won the cross country skiing event on Sunday (2 February) after contesting the event all the way with the Swedish quartet.

    Each of the year four competitors in the eleven teams completed one lap of the five kilometre (3 miles) Olympic course.

    The event-winner for Finland was Marjatta Kajosma on the final lap. She overtook the leading Swedish girl Meeri Badalid, and stormed ahead building up an impregnable 23 second lead.

    Her course time of 17 minutes 51.42 seconds was the fastest of the day.

    Sweden took second place and the Soviet women's team came in third.
