FIS Nordic Ski World Championships, Oslo 2011 Medal Ceremony 15km Cross Country Women Gold: Marit Bjørgen, Norway Silver: Justyna Kowalczyk, Poland Bronze: Therese Johaug, Norway
Massive crowd at today's ceremony. Probably around 50 000. There's not really room for more people here, I was standing in a bush myself, and people even stardet to climb up trees and up on the rood on some kiosks..!
FIS Nordic Ski World Championships, Oslo 2011 Petter Northug on his way to the gold..
Apart from Northug, this man was probably the most popular man today - Philip Boit, Kenya, who ended his career today (unless he intend to start the 50km also, I'm not sure honestly)
Cesar Baena, Venezuela -another popular man amongst the crowd. He skied with a norwegian flag in his hand and when he was lapped by the best guys, he went out to the side and joined us in the cheering..! After the race, in the finish area, he gave his flag to Northug who kept it through all the celebrations afterwards..
Kristin Størmer Steira takes a clear lead on the 3rd leg and gives Bjørgen a walk in the park on the last leg. Foggy you say!? Who cares; 80 000 spectators and fantastic mood..!
