Winter Olympics: Marit Bjoergen puts Norway top of the medals table


A gold for Norway's Marit Bjorgen in the final event of the 2018 Winter Olympics saw her country usurp Germany at the summit of the medal table in Pyeongchang.

After stunning Canada in the semi-final, Germany were on the cusp of creating more havoc, after two quick-fire goals from Dominik Kahun and Jonas Muller saw them leading the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation 3-2 with three minutes of the gold medal match remaining. Bjorgen was their fifteenth gold medallist of these Games - with Germany managing the same number - but a total medal haul of 39 ensured they finished top of the Pyeongchang medal charts.

The cross-country legend won convincingly, 1min 49.5sec ahead of ahead of Finland's Krista Parmakoski, with Stina Nilsson of Sweden taking bronze.

Norway ended the Games in South Korea with 14 golds, 14 silvers and 11 bronze medals, while Great Britain finished 19th, with a record haul of five medals, including four bronze and a single gold, won by Lizzie Yarnold in the Skeleton.
