MOSCOW, 11 Mar – Two-time Olympic champion in cross-country skiing, Norwegian Petter Nortug said that he was bored of watching his compatriots take the first ten places in the marathon at the World Cup in Oslo.
On Saturday, at the stage in Norway, a free style mass start was held, in which Simen Kruger won. The top ten were exclusively Norwegian skiers.
