Due to Martin Sundby's misdemeanour Dario Cologna inherits the overall World Cup victory 2014/2015.
The Norwegian XC-Star was tested two times positive for Salbutamol, an asthma drug which was applied incorrectly. Using a nebulizer instead of taking the medication on an inhaler he exceeded the allowed dose. The Norwegian Ski-Association has taken full responsibility due to the team-doctor explained that he had misunderstood the rules. Consequently, Martin Sundby loses his title as Tour de Ski Winner 2015 and also the overall World Cup Victory 2014/2015.
Due to this development Dario inherits the big crystal globe. Regarding to the rating he wins the Season 2014/2015 with 1103 points, the Norwegian athlete Petter Northug therefore gained second place with 1047 points.
We congratulate Dario to this late but nevertheless great performance.
