14:42 CET+01:00
Returning mum Anna-Carin Olofsson-Zidek and last year's number one Helena Jonsson finished top of the pile in Friday's World Cup sprint event at Hochfilzen in Austria.

Olofsson-Zidek, 36, marked her return to form following maternity leave by winning her ninth career victory, and the first since putting her career on hold in 2007 to have a baby.

She finished ahead of last year's world number one Helena Jonsson and Russia's Olga Zaitseva.

The event was run in difficult conditions with heavy snowfall and fog.

Jonsson holds the overall World Cup lead.
