Norway's Northug wins men's 50K cross-country race
WHISTLER, British Columbia (AP) Petter Northug saw the back of a familiar rival ahead of him, and knew this race would have a familiar ending.
The Norwegian blew past Germany's Axel Teichmann near the finish line for the second time at these Olympics, using his trademark sprint to win the 50-kilometer classical cross-country race for his second gold medal of the games.
"I knew I could take him," Northug said with his usual bravado. "I had another gear to use if I needed it."
