Marte Skanes (25) was a big bright spot apart from the gorgeous Therese Johaug at three miles on Saturday in Kollen. The 25-year-old has been with many of the best skaters in the world for a long time. She took an impressive eighth place.
The subsequent findings behind Johaug are frequently discussed during and after the Olympics. Although the scoresheets have been grim in reading this season, Scannes’ achievement gives hope for the future.
– I like it. I know it is offensive. She was tired, but she did really well in the race. It was fun and impressive, says coach Ole Morten Iversen.
Tears choked after Johog’s question
– Purification ready
Skanez was very happy after the race.
– There have been a lot of minor illnesses and injuries and a little bullshit lately. It was pretty cool to applaud, says Skanez.
– I felt it was nice to be a part of three rounds. After changing skis, it got pretty heavy, but I pulled myself together and was able to get to 8th. She says I am insanely happy about it.
Did you follow Barmakowski for 20 kilometers?
– It was a bit surreal. I didn’t think it would be like hanging out. That gave a lot of motivation, says Skanez.
Dreaming of a medal at home
The 25-year-old joined the national team discussion at the same time.
At least I say yes if I get the offer, says offensive girl Trønder.
Iverson is no stranger to this thought.
All cross-country skiing are good apps. Coach said she made a very good request today.
What can Scaniz bring to the national team?
-She had a development that went in the right direction unlike many other girls in recent years who stagnated when they got older. Scaniz has been a senior for a few years, but she has taken steps and is in a positive development. I’m sure she can take it a step further. Iverson says he’s an exciting runner for the future.
Skanes sought to participate in the World Cup at home in Trondheim in 2025.
– It’s the big dream. Being in the beginning and being willing to fight for a medal, she says.
