Charlotte Kalla SWE

This morning I didn't dare to hope for this. It feels great!  We had a good last exchange and I got a few meters. I just raced as fast as I could.  We had fantastic skis and it felt good. My dreams came true today.  Tomorrow's relay is going to be exciting.

Ida Ingemarsdotter SWE

Winning in Holmenkollen and in Norway is fantastic. I promised Charlotte I would give it all on the final leg of miine. There are more distances coming up and I believe Sweden is on the way up.

Maiken Caspersen Falla NOR

I knew I had to follow Aino Kaisa Saarinen (FIN) at any cost. And I did.  My legs felt like jelly and was a little nervous in front of the large crowd. I saw a lot of familiar faces.  I got revenge from the individual sprint.  This is my best championship result ever.  Before the final leg we were in a good position for a medal.  This was so much fun. I want to thank all the spectators for support.

Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen NOR

The Swedes had a good exchange and I lost a few meters. So I had to try to catch up with Charlotte.  I felt it was more important go for the gold than to secure the silver. Therefore I decided to attack in the long uphill.  I was totally empty towards the end. Trying to catch up Kalla had cost me too much.  I want to thank Marit Bjoergen for not racing today or I wouldn't stand here now.
