There was no doubt about the gold medal winner. Gohog’s effort gave a margin of victory of 1.43.2 minutes. On the podium she brought Skanis, Marin and Engenstein with her.

The title of NM is the 17th individual in her career. Only Marit Björgen has more than 25 victories. Johaug first became Norway’s champion at the age of 18 at three miles in 2007.

It was a great trip with good loans. The conditions were very nice and better than I had previously feared, she said in an interview with NRK.

Before the start of the race, Johaug stated that “it’s not just about getting this”. However, it looks just like that at the ski track. The Dalsbygda star was in a league of his own.

– There are many years of training and training behind. You can’t lie on the couch and expect it to come on its own. She then stated that the task should be done as an explanation for why she is so much better than the rest of the field.

So many memories

Earlier this winter, Gohoge won three Olympic gold medals from the Beijing Olympics. After returning home, she revealed that life as a runner for the national team was over by the end of the season. The 33-year-old stopped short of 82 individual victories at the World Cup. The last one arrived in Fallon two weeks ago.

– Sad thing. “I have so many wonderful memories of the North Mediterranean, and it has been a very long journey,” Johog said of my feeling of giving up.

– I have a great time and I love training and skiing. This is what makes it so painful. I’m not sorry, but there is a time for everything. Life offers more than just skiing, but it’s nice to be on top.

Soon an elite runner?

Wow Scanis in the Scandinavian Cup this winter. Recently, she was the second best Norwegian behind Johog by three miles at Holmenkollen. The Strindheim runner is expected to make the move from the recruit to the elite national team before next season.

On Saturday, Skanez led by 5.4 seconds over bronze medalist Wangenstein.

For the women, NM in Harstad continues the relay on Sunday, Monday and three miles on Tuesday. The second part of this winter’s Norwegian Championship will take place in Lygna from 6-8 April.
