The *Actual* Sprints

Well, that was fun, wasn't it? The short-course mass-start skate races turned out to be crazy, massive bunch sprints: less than seven seconds covered the first 17 women and only ten seconds separated the first 24 men - almost half the fracking field.

I hope Vegard Ulvang looks at this and tells Jurg Capol that the short mass-start was a bad idea.

But Saturday, there are actual sprints, freestyle of course. No, Kikkan Randall isn't gonna make the podium again.

Majdic? In freestyle??

Also... the whole Norwegian team just DNS'ed. Weird.

She won freestyle sprints at Dusseldorf and Davos this year already! Though being 5s back in qualification doesn't bode well.
