Norway's golden girl
The women’s 10km pursuit has just got underway with Norway’s ‘Iron Lady’ Marit Bjoergen aiming to win a fifth Olympic gold medal.
The 33-year-old won the 15km pursuit last Saturday and claimed three gold medals in Vancouver four years ago.
This time she’s defending the title she won in Canada and is the sport’s most successful athlete.
But can anyone stop her?
Justyna Kowalczyk of Poland is in with a chance – she won the 30km classical at the 2010 Games, while she also won the overall World Cup title in 2008/9 and Tour de Ski the following year.
The warm weather is threatening to affect the snow but so far, it's looking OK.
