Alaskan wins Iditarod sled dog race

Pete Kaiser won the Iditarod early Wednesday, throwing his arms over his head and pumping his fists as he became the latest Alaskan to claim victory in the iconic sled dog race. Kaiser, 31, crossed the finish line in Nome, Alaska, after beating back a challenge from the defending champion, Norwegian musher Joar Ulsom. Ulsom was about 40 minutes behind Kaiser and made up ground in the final 124 kilometres to Nome but couldn't overtake him. Ulsom placed second, coming across the finish line before Kaiser could get his picture taken on the winner's podium.
