Marit Bjorgen gets third gold medal at Sochi by winning cross-country 30 km mass start


Norway swept the podium at the cross-country 30 km mass start, as Marit Bjorgen’s dominant Sochi run continued on Friday.

Bjorgen now has three gold medals at the Sochi games, six golds in her career and 10 medals overall all-time.

Bjorgen finished with a top time of 1:11:05.2, edging her countrywomen with silver medal-winner Therese Johaug (1:11:07.8) and bronze winner Kristin Stoermer Steira (1:11:28.8). There was a pretty big gap between the Norwegians and everyone else, as Finland’s Kerttu Niskanen finished with a time of 1:12:26.9.
