Us gold medal

Post by Chisana » Thu Feb 22, 2018 12:47 am

When I was driving this morning and heard over the radio that jessica and kikkan had won the GOLD MEDAL in the team sprints,it sent chills down my spine. Even brought a tear to my eyes. Anybody know if there is a recording of this event available on the internet? Congrats girls, you have given every nordic junior inspiration.

I watched the race. Holy hell it was exciting! Those climbs looked very painful and those athletes are amazing.

I wish I'd have seen it live, I bet it was awesome. What an ending for a 5 time American olympic xc skier.

J. Deggins attacked on one of her laps and dropped the Swiss, leaving three for the medals. Then later was clearly just not willing to settle for less than gold even though Sweden and Norway skiers had moved a bit ahead. Her sprint was amazing to see. The Norwegian skier congratulating them after the finish seemed more joyful about it than good sportsmanship requires ;-)
