After Olympic gold, France's Lamy-Chappuis takes World Cup title

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-03-05

Three weeks after claiming Olympic gold, Jason Lamy-Chappuis, 23, picked up the crystal globe in the Nordic combined on Friday. The Frenchman finished tenth in Lahti, enough to guarantee his victory in the World Cup with two races to go.

AFP- France's Jason Lamy-Chappuis won the World Cup nordic combined title in Lahti, Finland, on Friday, three weeks after claiming Olympic gold.
  
Despite finishing tenth, Lamy-Chappuis, 23, is assured of winning the overall title before the final two events of the season, as he has a 200-point advantage on second-placed Austrian Felix Gottwald.
  
The Frenchman finished 13th in the ski jump and 44 seconds behind winner Magnus Moan of Norway in the 10km cross country, with Finland's Hannu Manninen and Germany's Tino Edelmann second and third respectively.
  
Lamy-Chappuis becomes the second Frenchman to win the title after Fabrice Guy picked up the crystal globe in 1992, emulating his compatriot who also claimed Olympic gold that year.
