After three second places behind Gyda Westvold Hansen in Lillehammer (NOR) and Ramsau (AUT), Hagen celebrated the first World Cup victory of her career at the premiere of the Individual Compact on December 16, 2023 in Ramsau.

After coming second behind teammate Mari Leinan Lund in Oberstdorf (GER), she won again in the second Compact competition of the season.

Another second place behind Lund in Schonach (GER) was followed by her first Gundersen victory a day later in the 8km race in summer temperatures, with which she also won the German Trophy.

The 23-year-old won both competitions in Seefeld (AUT) and came second at the Mass Start in Otepää (EST), again behind Hansen.

Hagen secured victory at the following two Individual Gundersen in Otepää, as well as at the home event in Oslo (NOR) where she also won the Kings Trophy for the first time.

With her victory, her Overall World Cup victory was also confirmed, so that she could start the final in Trondheim (NOR) relaxed, where she won once again in front of the home crowd.

With nine wins in 15 competitions and 1440 points, Hagen took the crystal globe ahead of Gyda Westvold Hansen (1280 pts) and Mari Leinan Lund (1044 pts).

Jarl Magnus Riiber looks back on another record season. The Norwegian started the winter with a second place at the Individual Compact premiere behind teammate Jens Luraas Oftebro in Ruka (FIN) after dislocating his shoulder during the PCR jump.

This was followed by two victories at the Gundersen and Mass Start, where he also set a new hill record with 153.5 meters, as well as the Ruka Tour title.

Two victories in Lillehammer (NOR) were followed by two second places in Ramsau (AUT) in the Mass Start and Compact behind Johannes Lamparter.

Riiber started the new year with two victories in Oberstdorf (GER) and also secured the Overall Compact title there, before winning both Gundersen events as well as the Black Forest Cup and the German Trophy in Schonach (GER).

Riiber's winning streak also remained unbroken at the traditional Seefeld TRIPLE, which the 26-year-old won for the third time in his career with three wins.

On February 9th, 2024, Riiber broke his own record with the 8th win in a row in Otepää (EST) and also left the competition behind in the following two Gundersen competitions and secured the overall World Cup title with 449 points on February 11th Lead over Stefan Rettenegger.

For health reasons, the Norwegian did not take part in the subsequent World Cup in Lahti (FIN), but returned to the starting field for the home competition in Oslo (NOR).

With two victories on his favorite hill and winning his 5th Kings Cup, the exceptional athlete celebrated his 11th and 12th victory in a row - an all-time record.

Due to knee problems, Riiber did not take part in the final in Trondheim (NOR), but was present to receive the 5th Crystal Globe of his career.

With 16 wins and 1870 points, Riiber won ahead of Stefan Rettenegger (1530 pts) and Johannes Lamparter (1456 pts).
