Biggest surprises

Norwegian Cross-Country skier Ragnhild Haga upset her famous rivals to win the ladies' 10km free event: "When I started the last downhill I was thinking, this is the most important downhill of your life. You better stay on your feet,” she said after the race.

Historic achievements

The USA won gold in the ladies’ team sprint on Wednesday. Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins are the first American cross-country skiers to win a medal at the Olympics since Bill Koch took home a silver in 1976. It is the first gold medal in cross-country skiing for the country.

Norway came a close third in team sprint, earning Marit Bjoergen her 14th Olympic medal to become the most decorated Winter Olympian of all time.

Dario Cologna (SUI) became the first cross-country skier to win three Olympic titles in one specific men's event after claiming the 15km free gold in PyeongChang 2018, adding the title to his gold medal in the 15km event at Sochi 2014 (classic) and Vancouver 2010 (free).
