Jarl Magnus Riiber continued his outstanding Nordic Combined season at Val di Fiemme, as the Norwegian claimed top spot in the Gundersen 10km World Cup.

The 22-year-old finished the event in Italy in a time of 26:10.9 to claim his second consecutive victory after topping the charts in the previous event in Austria in December.

This latest win was his seventh out of eight competitions this season, as he continues to look head and shoulders above the rest of the field.
