Bjorgen said in the interview that she is a little troubled by the trademark Sprint Queen. She doesn’t mind it but is not totally comfortable about it either.

– My goal is still to become a complete skier. Winn more than sprint races. It’s still a bit in Norway that you are not a “real skier” before you have won the 50-kilometer in Holmenkollen, said Marit.

 Dares to take chances

Samdal is a tough coach. He requires high standards.

— It’s not interesting to me to travel around to World Cup races with a team of average level skiers. It’s better to train hard, take chances and at least get four of the eight up to a level where you can take medals. We have to accept that two out of the eight might not be able to fully handle this type of program.

 How many wasn’t able to handle it last year?

– We had good experiences. We are continuing the same way as last year. It was in retrospect a little too tough for some of the development team skiers. Some of them struggled. But no one was “ruined”. There are no corpses in the coffin, said Samdal.

Six medals at Worlds, three of them gold is Samdal's goal for the season.

– We are going to win the sprint, the sprint relay and the regular relay.
