Norway claimed gold and silver in the ladies sprint final at the Laura cross country course on Tuesday but it was not their better-known skiers taking the honours.
Maiken Caspersen Falla and Ingvild Flugstad Oestberg (Norway) finished first and second with Vesnar Fabjan (Slovenia) grabbing bronze. It was a first Olympic medal for all three athletes.
To everyone's surprise neither of the favourites made the final. Kikkan Randall (USA) went out in the quarterfinals and Marit Bjoergen (Norway) in the semifinals.
