Marit_Wins_Gold…not once, not twice, not three times but she has won gold 4 TIMES in the last two weeks. Simply amazing!

She won her first gold medal already on the first day of the world championships in the ladies 1.3km sprint.

Her second gold medal came a few days later in the ladies pursuit 7.5 km classic + 7.5 km free.

Last Monday she skied her way into the history books by winning her third individual gold medal for Norway in the same world championships. That was in the individual 10km classic.

Her fourth and last gold medal came in the ladies’ 4×5 km Relay Classic/Free.

She ended the world championships in Oslo with a silver medal in the 30km! What an excellent performance by an outstanding athlete. Marit is without a doubt the queen of the world championships.
