Lars Oberg seems to have gone crazy and is blocking Rosie Brennan’s path. The specialist has already been fined.

The classic sprint of the 2023/2024 Cross-Country World Ski Championships in Östersund, Sweden, ended with Johannes Klebo’s first victory of the season and a loud scandal. During the final race, Swedish national team coach Lars Oberg threw himself at the feet of American Rosie Brennan, who finished fourth.

What will happen at the 2023/2024 Ski World Cup in Östersund:

The account of Klebo’s victories is open! How was the sprint race in Östersund, Sweden?

The 35-year-old American was very strong in the sprint. She was a clear candidate for the award, but then Oberg intervened. The Swedish coach, giving his athletes a hint, simply jumped onto the slope and ended up on Brennan’s ski slope. Naturally, the American had to slow down, push the offender and yell at him to get off the road.

As a result, Brennan, who specializes in skating style rather than classical, did not make the top 3. Perhaps he would not have been able to do so without the incident, although he performed admirably on the rough snow and difficult track.

It was simply a wild and idiotic act on Oberg’s part. It seems that the Swedish coach simply went crazy, not realizing that a collision could have occurred and the athlete could have been injured. Brennan held back his words when commenting on the coach’s behavior. He could have said something more drastic.

“This is unacceptable! Of course, this is not at all what is expected in a race,” said the American. “I don’t know how to describe the coach’s actions, especially if he knew what he was doing.” I had to reduce the “Speed ​​to avoid a collision. But it could have been much worse. This type of behavior cannot go unpunished to prevent it from happening again in the future.”

Norway coach Erik Muir Nossum admitted after finishing the sprint that he yelled at Lars Oberg for his reckless behavior. The Swedish mentor fully admitted his guilt and stated that he was “angry at himself for what he did.” The competition jury fined Oberg 6,000 Swedish crowns, but it is a ridiculous amount.

This incident left behind the beautiful victory of the Swede Emma Ribohm, who won the second sprint of the season. She managed to take on the powerful Norwegian Kristine Schistad, who was not helped by even her blistering acceleration at the finish line. In third place was another Swede, Lynn Swan.

What did Klebo do when he missed the World Cup?

Klebo won the Norwegian Cup race after failing in the World Cup. Are there better opponents there?

Johannes Klebo won the men’s race. The leader of the Norwegian team, who started the season poorly and even missed the last stage, came back and won. In your dominant style. Klebo escaped from his opponents already at half distance. The second was the other Norwegian, Erik Valnes, and the third was the American James Schoonmaker, who for the first time in his career competed in the sprint final at a World Championship and immediately climbed onto the podium.
