Kowalczyk -

Justyna Kowalczyk travelled down under and has put on skis again. Justyna Kowalczyk is going to spend for the fourth time almost the whole month of August at Snow Farm, New Zealand. Last weekend Kowalczyk put on a race bib, for the first time since the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Ladies competed in 10 km Mass Start Classic and 5 km Free. Justyna Kowalczyk won both competitions ahead of compatriot Sylwia Jaskowiec who joined the team in spring. Kowalczyk stopped the clock of the 10 km race in 33:20.5. Jaskowiec lost +1:33.9. The result of the shorter race in free technique was tighter as Kowalczyk won with a +5.7 sec margin. 

Maciej Kreczmer won men’s competitions, 15 km Mass Start Classic and 10 km Free ahead of Brian Mckeever (CAN) and Andrew Pohl (NZL).
