VAL DI FIEMME, Italy - Virpi Kuitunen of Finland won the women's Tour de Ski title Sunday after taking first place in the 9-kilometer pursuit.
Kuitunen won the race in 37 minutes, 26.9 seconds, a day after winning the 10K classic race on Saturday.
Aino Kaisa Saarinen was second Sunday, 7.2 seconds behind, and took second in the Tour de Ski standings. Petra Majdic of Slovenia was third in both Sunday's race and the overall standings.
Kuitunen attacked from the front and led for most of the race, but with three kilometers to go, Saarinen made her move and broke away. Kuitunen came back with less than a kilometer to go and held on to win.
The nation grieved for those hurt, killed and affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. After one of the suspects was caught on Friday — following a day-long lockdown and manhunt — sports returned to Boston over the weekend.
