Marit Bjoergen of Norway wins women's 30-kilometer mass start gold

Norway's Marit Bjoergen has closed out a remarkable Olympic cross-country skiing career in dominant fashion, winning the gold medal in the women's 30-kilometer mass start at the Pyeongchang Games.

The 37-year-old Bjoergen finished Sunday's event in 1 hour, 22 minutes and 17.6 seconds -- more than 1 minute, 49 seconds ahead of silver medalist Krista Parmakoski from Finland.

Sweden's Stina Nilsson won bronze.

Bjoergen had plenty of time to pick up the Norwegian flag on the stretch run and wave it as she crossed the finish line to become the only competitor to win five medals at the Pyeongchang Games.

Bjoergen finishes her career with 15 medals, leaving her as the most decorated Winter Games athlete of all time.

Austria's Teresa Stadlober had been in second place in Sunday's race but accidentally took a wrong turn and finished ninth.
