Petra Majdic: Awesome

I'm bummed that Petra Majdic is leaving Liberec without a medal, because she seems pretty cool, as this English-language interview from Swedish TV shows. The bit at 2:20 about the origins of her famous excitability is especially great.

I think Sodo should be given the gold medal by default in the 30km pursuit because everyone else in the field was too chicken shit to attack. It made me so happy to see him instantly blow apart the race on the gigantic uphill leaving the stadium when Sodo realized he was running out of real estate. Too bad for Sodo Northug can sprint at the end of 30km faster than most people can sprint 1.4km...

Having just watched the video, I completely agree. The first 10k of that skate leg were what I fear mass starts have turned into.
