The latest leg of the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) Cross-Country World Cup concluded in Davos today with American Jessie Diggins victorious in the women's individual, while Simen Hegstad Krüger led a top six completely made up of Norwegians in the men's race.

Diggins, who claimed bronze in the event at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games, battled back-and-forth with Norway's Ingvild Flugstad Østberg over the 20 kilometres, exchanging the lead. 

She managed to get her 14th World Cup victory in the end, holding off Østberg by five seconds, crossing the line in a time of 48min 43.2sec.

It puts her up to second in the season standings behind another Norwegian, Tiril Udnes Weng, who was fourth today, just half-a-second behind the bronze medallist, Rosie Brennan from the United States, who was 11 seconds adrift of her teammate. 

Brennan has history in Davos, having won her only two World Cup races, back-to-back, here two years ago in the sprint and individual.

Anne Kjersti Kalvå from Norway was fifth.

Finland's Krista Pärmäkoski is third in the overall standings after finishing seventh, seconds after France's Delphine Claudel.

While there was not a gold for Norway in the women's race, there was utter dominance for the nation in the men's.

Krüger was individually dominant for the second half of the race, refusing to give up the lead, eventually crossing the line in 42:12.3.

Hans Christer Holund was his closest challenger, 22 seconds behind after a strong second-half, managing to overtake Sjur Røthe in the last five kilometres, with just two seconds separating them at the line.

Didrik Tønseth was fourth just in front of defending World Cup champion Johannes Høsflot Klæbo, who sits second overall so far this season.

The sixth Norwegian in a row was under-23 skier Iver Tildheim Andersen, narrowly in front of the first skier not from the country, Friedrich Moch from Germany.

The World Cup circuit takes a break until December 31, with a doubleheader at Val Müstair over the New Year's holiday in Switzerland.
