Jonsson won the men's sprint at the Lahti Ski Games and secured the title with 530 points. Jonsson's closest challenger, Norway's Ola Vigen Hattestad, missed the semifinal and has 364 points in second place after finishing 13th.
Among the women, Norway's Marit Bjoergen spearheaded a Norwegian double with Astrid Jacobsen.
Petra Majdic of Slovenia was third and overtook the sprint World Cup lead from Kikkan Randall of the United States. Majdic has 430 points ahead of Italy's Arianna Follis, sixth on Sunday, on 423 points.
Randall did not advance beyond the quarterfinal. She placed 21st but still stands an outside chance with 401 points and one race _ in Stockholm _ to come.
