KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia, February 11 (R-Sport) – Norway won two cross-country sprint skiing gold medals in the space of 10 minutes Tuesday as Ola Vigen Hattestad won a crash-marred men’s final after Maiken Caspersen Falla took women’s gold.

Hattestad took the gold by 1.22 seconds from Sweden’s Teodor Petersson. The two had been in a race of their own after the other four in the final were wiped out by crashes.

Another Swede, Emil Joensson, eventually trailed over the line to claim the bronze medal, 19.74 seconds off the pace.
