Marit Bjoergen had the responsibility for the Norway Women’s 4x5 relay to be fourth leg and pull the team into first place. I knew Marit was in a tuck on the hill just above me and to my left, what I did not know was how far she pulled ahead of the pack in the last KM. I found a hole in the snow next to the course someone had dug earlier allowing me a low angle. Marit came out of her tuck looking down and polled one V1 on her left looked up and the arena erupted with noise from every person, the sound was deafening! As she looked up and smiled I knew this was for her the very moment of joy in her third gold of the Olympics.
