Sweden's Kalla wins first gold of PyeongChang 2018

"I am very happy to take a medal in my last Olympics and still to be there", Bjørgen said.

"Being seconds out of a medal is so exciting because I know it's possible". I am happy with that.

The 37-year-old Norwegian legend had to content herself with another record, however; her silver took her medal tally to 11, making her the most decorated female Winter Olympian of all time. "It is my fifth Olympics and I am happy to be here at my age". "Charlotte was stronger than me". It became her 11th medal across five Olympics: a silver in Salt Lake City in 2002; a silver in Turin, Italy, in 2006; three golds and a silver and a bronze in Vancouver in 2010; three golds in Sochi, Russia, in 2014, and this.

Chinese skier Lixin clocked in 46:01.9 to finish 51st while her teammate Chi Chunxue settled for the 55th in 46:39.0.

On the 23rd winter Olympic games in Pyeongchang awarded the first medal.




"I tried my best today, so I am satisfied with this result".

A 10km freestyle gold medallist at Vancouver 2010 and a 4x5km relay victor at Sochi 2014, Kalla is the first female Swedish athlete in her sport to win three Olympic titles.

Saturday's games at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics feature the first match of the joint North-South Korean women's ice hockey team, as diplomacy takes center stage at the start of the games.

Kalla has now equalled canoeist Agneta Andersson as the Swedish woman with the most Olympic gold medals, with three. At the 2014 Sochi Games, Kalla earned silver while Bjoergen won the gold.
