Bjørgen makes history - again

Bjørgen makes history - again
Norwegian cross-country skier Marit Bjørgen (36) once again wrote a chapter for the history books when she beat her own record and won her 16th World Cup gold medal.

She outclassed the competition and won the women's 10 km classic individual start in Lahti today. The 36-year-old took her 24th World Cup medal and now has a total of 16 World Cup gold medals, five World Cup silver medals and three World Cup bronze medals.

Swedish Charlotte Kalla won the silver medal in today's 10 km, while Norwegian Astrid Uren Held Jacobsen won the bronze.

Bjørgen said straight after the race that she was very nervous before the race.

- I really wanted to go home, but I got a good feeling when we tested the skis. The skis were very good. I took many seconds on the second round and everything went my way, said 36-year-old in the victory interview.
