OSLO, Norway (AP) — Norway's Marit Bjoergen won the women's 30-kilometer classical race at Holmenkollen on Sunday in dominating style.

Bjoergen, who also won the 30K at the Sochi Olympics where it was a freestyle event, finished in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 55.7 seconds.

Countrywoman Therese Johaug, the overall World Cup leader, came in a distant second — 1 minute, 41 seconds behind. Finland's Kerttu Niskanen was third, 2:25.8 back.

Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen of Norway was injured during the race and was taken off the course in an ambulance. Her condition was not immediately clear.
