Pärmäkoski started the five-kilometer free section in third place, twenty seconds behind Anni Alakoski of Kainuu Ski Club.

The anchor of the Vantaa Ski Club he mentioned Jasmi Joensuu started his leg in fourth place, 8.8 seconds after Pärmäkoski. Pärmäkoski quickly reached Alakoski, which also had to be passed by Joensuu. This is how the Kainuu Ski Club missed out on a medal.

Vantaa’s bronze team skied in addition to Joensuu Anni Kainulainen and Rebecca Immonen.

“You can’t know”, the 12-time medalist of the competition answered.
On Sunday, in Inari, the final trips of the season’s ski championships will be held free of charge. Men ski 50 and women 30 kilometers on heavy slopes. Joensuu is still thinking about his participation.
“I think I’m not on the line, I’m going home. My mind is getting tired. We have to see if I can be persuaded to the line. It’s been a good two days and it’s nice, but mentally I’m tired at the end of a long season,” said Joensuu, who is still participating in the Finnish Cup in Rovaniemi.
