i was impressed by the laukkanen win today (and yesterday) and particularly by her humble gesture dedicated to the untimely departure of a finnish coach. nice to see finland perform and grieve as a TEAM ! if it took 29 years for laukkanen to burst into the ranks, no one should feel snarky...
in quebec, i was very pleased by stina and hanna yesterday. also, as always, good to see harvey overpowering the norges in the sprint. he also was very solid today. i heard him promising the nrk interviewer a hard chase after klaebo tomorrow.
i thank the xc gods for allowing parma and bess to interfere into the red parade...that said, i am not sure klaebo will be able to stay away in a pursuit tomorrow. the talent is on his side, but the experience is on the chasers.
