Sochi 2014: Cross-country preview – Norway looking to repeat Vancouver medals domination

The Norwegians look set to crush the opposition in the cross-country events at Sochi 2014, just like they did four years ago in Vancouver, with ‘Iron Lady’ Marit Bjoergen and Petter Northug leading a formidable squad.

Northug has established himself as one of the most consistent male performers since the 2010 Winter Olympics, where he claimed two titles to help Norway secure nine medals – five of them golds.
