Randall & Diggins Make History: First Olympic Gold For Non-Europeans

They say “A picture is worth a thousand words”. We concur – and instead of stuffing you with various info about two ladies who made a history last night by winning the very first non-European gold in cross-country skiing, we shall effort to convey what we saw throughout this season, their steps to triumph in Pyeonchang

Without further ado:

No more smiling. This is “Jessie’s Victory Face” – and she indeed will win that 10k WC race
early appearances could be deceiving: in that race Randall was overtaken by Natalie Nepryeva. In the Olympic team sprint finals, however, the young Russian, although putting a very solid performance herself, was clearly beaten by Randall
