Ilkka Herola and Eero Hirvonen delighted the home fans as the Finnish duo took a narrow victory in the team sprint at the Nordic Combined World Cup.

The duo topped the standings on home snow in Lahti after they powered across the line first in the cross country to guide them to the win.

Their time of 27:50.6, on top of their sixth-placed finish in the jumping with 212.4 points, was enough for them to finish 0.2 seconds ahead of Norway.
