– I was a bit excited about the form before the race today, Johaug says to NRK – and gives himself a roll of the dice “4.5 / 5” because “she lacks the last spark”.

HANG: Heidi Weng hung on Therese Johaug – and eventually also on the poles.

Heidi Weng reveals that she did not have a smooth path to the finish.

I realized I just had to stop and take it away. I actually screamed for the one coach, but then I thought “now you calm down, Heidi, there is no life to do, this”, Weng says to NRK.

– This is something the best we have seen of Silje Theodorsen, says NRK commentator Jann Post.

– She is starting to sign up for the World Cup discussion, Torgeir Bjørn thinks.
