MORA, Sweden (AP) ' Jorgen Brink of Sweden set a course record in winning the 56-mile Vasaloppet cross-country ski marathon for the third straight year Sunday.

Charity racer Pippa Middleton finished the women's race in 412th place.

Brink finished in 3 hours, 38.41 minutes, beating compatriot Daniel Tynell, who finished second, and Stanislav Rezac of the Czech Republic in third.

The ideal snow conditions also helped Vibeke Skofterud of Norway set a course record in the women's race, which she won in 4:08.24, ahead of Laila Kveli of Norway and Seraina Boner of Switzerland.

Middleton, the sister of Prince William's new bride, Kate Middleton, finished the traditional Swedish ski marathon in 7:13:36.
