In the women’s individual race for 10 km free style at the Olympic games in 2018 there was a unique case.
For the first time in the history of women’s ski racing at the Games between athletes was divided into the medal.
The Norwegian Marit bjoergen and Finnish Krista Pharmacoki showed the same time – 25.32,4, which allowed them to take third place.
Thus, the organizers presented the skiers just two bronze medals.
Recall that gold was won by another representative of Norway, Ragnhild Haga.
