Pyeongchang - Norway's Marit Bjoergen became the most successful athlete in Winter Olympic history on Wednesday as she took bronze behind a stunning win for U.S. in cross-country skiing's women's team sprint free.
While waiting to take her place on the podium, Bjoergen had an unimpeded view of her compatriot Johannes Klaebo as he crossed the line to win the men's team sprint event and take his third gold of his debut Games.
"It's hard to understand, actually", Bjoergen said. Italy's Sofia Goggia took the gold, with Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel taking the silver. At just 21, he may one day mount a challenge to Bjoergen's new record, although it will be many years before he or anyone else comes close to her benchmark.
Bjoergen made her Olympic debut - and won her first medal (a silver in the 4x5km relay) way back in 2002 in Salt Lake City. "Like I said before, when I've finished skiing I'll look behind me and see what I have done", she said.
It was in Vancouver 2010 that she truly announced herself to the world on the sport's biggest stage, securing three gold medals (sprint, skiathlon and relay), a silver (30-km classic) and a bronze (10-km freestyle).
