Leccardi shines in Victoria


Switzerland’s Valerio Leccardi held his nerve to claim the Kangaroo Hoppet international cross country ski marathon at Falls Creek on Saturday.

More than 1,000 skiers from 24 nations turned out for the largest annual snowsports event in the southern hemisphere.

Leccardi completed the 42km trek in a winning time of one hour, 20 minutes and 3.6 seconds enough to edge out Phillip Bellingham of Australia with compatriot Paul Kovacs completing the podium.
