Norway recorded it's 6th gold medal of the Championships becoming the first nation to do so by winning all the ladies' competitions.

 

Today's winner Marit Bjoergen was apart of four of those gold medals, and 3 of them individually.  By winning the ladies' 30 km mass start in free technique she won her 18th WSC gold medal.  

 

She led a Norwegian sweep of the podium with teammates Heidi Weng and Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen separated by a photo finish to decide the silver and bronze medal positions.  

 

Both crossed the line +1.9 seconds behind the winning time of 1:08:36.8 set by Bjoergen.  The silver went to Weng and the bronze to Jacobsen.

Actually it was a pretty compact race, 10 skiers were in a pack until the very end. Just on the last 2-3 climbs team Norge hit the gas.

 

Ughhh, i wanted Heidi to win an individual gold, damn you Bjorgen. :mad:

What a fishy result again. The best thing about the race was the story about the russian guy who just got to Lahti for this race by train yesterday. :clap:

The race itself was the expected snoozefest and it became clear again that this event has to die as soon as possible.

Canada's Alex Harvey is 50 km World Champion

Z

 

 

Canada's Alex Harvey won the men's 50 km free technique mass start competition to end the 2017 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships.

 

Harvey won team sprint gold in the 2011 Oslo World Championships with teammate Devon Kershaw but this was his first individual gold medal.  In the silver medal position was Russia's Sergey Ustiugov just +0.6 seconds behind.  He now ties Bjorn Daehlie and Petter Northug as the only male athletes to win 5 medals at one Championship.  In the bronze medal position to the thrill of the home crowd was Finland's Matti Heikkinen +1.4 seconds back of Harvey.  

 

Norway's Martin Johnsrud Sundby over the final kilometer did what he could to narrow the field down but he was unable to get away from Harvey and Ustiugov.  Heikkinen was slightly gapped but came back to the leading three in the stadium and on the same corner where he went down in the men's relay he overtook Sundby for the bronze medal position. Britain's Andrew Musgrave also overtook Sundby on the homestretch to take 4th place, a best ever finish for a British cross-country skier.
