– Last night I slept nothing. I’ve struggled with a stomach that doesn’t work, and I don’t know what it is. But I’ve gone to the bathroom more than I slept in the last 24 hours. I had decided this morning that I was not going to walk five miles, but then I changed to 30 miles. It’s another race. Then I couldn’t help myself. It didn’t work, Klæbo tells Discovery.
that is It became a big day for Alexander Bolshunov, has become Klæbo’s great nightmare. The race was about half finished when he packed his things and thought that was enough.
– He was hooked and went alone. It was a heavy start for the tournament, and a heavy end for Kleibo. But everything in between was good. It wasn’t the five-mile race, nor the race he imagined, says NRK expert Bjorn.
So Klæbo takes with him an unsuccessful 30 km with a ski change, but then goes in both the sprint and team sprint, silver in the relay and bronze in the 15 km individual start.
– He goes sad alone
Klæbo is one of Norway’s top candidates after Saturday’s Olympic five-mile race was cut short to 28.4km due to temperatures and strong winds.
But the Trondelag man was tough. The signals came early. When the proper pace was set, the 25-year-old slowed to the back.
In a second post, he nodded in the direction of all-around coach Eric Mer-Nasom. NRK Bjørn expert thought he was walking alone sad.
When the race was over, it didn’t take him many seconds to get to the close group. But in the difficult hills after a few kilometers, Klæbo lost half a minute.
In the end, TV cameras caught Klæbo walking off the track. He took off his starting number. Shortly thereafter, he had taken off his skis and taken a brisk walk away from the cross-country ski runs.
