Eighth Gold for Bjoergen
Marit Bjoergen of Norway powered away from the field and won the women’s mass start race by almost two minutes. It was the eighth gold medal and 15th medal overall for Bjoergen, 37.

The eight gold medals equaled the record held by two other Norwegians, Ole Bjoerndalen in biathlon and Bjoern Daehlie in cross country. The 15 medals is the record.

“When I look behind me and see what I have done, it's incredible,” Bjoergen said. “It has been an amazing career for me; this is my last Olympics and to finish like this is incredible.”

Teresa Stadlober of Austria was in second place when she took a wrong turn, dropping her back to eighth. She finished ninth.
