    Belmondo wins women's ski cross-country pursuit

     RAMSAU, Austria (AP) -- Stefania Belmondo of Italy registered her first World Cup victory of the cross country ski season, taking a 10-kilometer pursuit race Sunday.
     Belmondo, who will be making her fourth Olympic appearance next month, is a specialist in the 10K pursuit event, in which she won the silver medal in 1992 and the bronze medal in 1994.

But in Sunday's freestyle portion, Belmondo set a punishing pace over the two laps of the Wiese trail and beat Larissa Lazutina of Russia by 11.8 seconds. Her combined time of 38 minutes, 4.4 seconds, gave Belmondo her 17th career victory in a World Cup event.
     Bente Martinsen of Norway, who won the 5K race, finished seventh to retain the lead in the World Cup standings with 531 points.
     Italy's won the men's 40K relay race, beating Sweden by one second.
