The summer national championships in Norway were also held on this past weekend. In a finish line sprint in Sjusjoen, Magnus Krog emerged victorious and claimed the title of Norwegian summer national champion ahead of Mikko Kokslien (+0.0) and Thomas Kjelbotn (+0.10).

After the ski jumping part, Havard Klemetsen was in the lead with 128,5 points, followed by Thomas Kjelbotn (123,5) and Jan Schmid (123,5). During the roller-ski race, the strong skiers Krog and Kokslien managed to catch up with the leaders and decided the race in a finish line sprint which couldn't end any closer.

Magnus was happy about his performance: "I was wonderful to get such a confirmation of my training results so far. I am doing much better in the cross-country part but I still have a way to go in ski jumping. But it's still a long time until the beginning of the season and I'll use that time to be well prepared then."
