CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING

-

Marit Bjoergen moved into a tie for the most career Winter Olympic medals with 13 after helping the Norwegian women to a first-place finish in the cross-country relay. Bjoergen tied male biathlete and fellow Norwegian Ole Einar Bjoerndale­n, and can move into sole possession of the record with a medal in either one of the last two women’s events: the team sprint relay Wednesday or in the mass start. “I don’t think about that now,” Bjoergen said. “I’m just focused on each race and I think I have to look behind me after the Olympics and see how many medals I have.” Sweden finished second, and a team of Russians was third.
