After scoring the best-ever Olympic finish for a U.S. female cross-country skier in the individual sprint, Sophie Caldwell now sets her sights on the 10km classic, which you can WATCH ON NBCOLYMPICS.COM at 5 a.m. ET.

Holly Brooks, Sadie Bjornsen and Ida Sargent will also go for Team USA in this event, which has Charlotte Kalla of Sweden as its defending Olympic champion (NOTE: This event was contested in the freestyle technique in Vancouver).

Kalla’s win made her the first Swedish woman to claim an Olympic cross-country gold in 42 years.

Norway’s “Iron Lady” of cross-country, four-time Olympic gold medalist Marit Bjorgen, will look to stop Kalla from retaining her title.
