FasterSkier FasterSkierDecember 15, 2004

Marit Bjorgen paired with rising star Ella Gjoemle for the second time this year, and for the second time, they managed to finish ahead of the rest of the world–this time in Asiago, Italy. One second back was the Finland I team of Virpi Kuitunen and Aino Kaisa Saarinen. These two teams utterly crushed the rest of the field. Sweden finished third, 28 seconds back.

In the men's relay, Norwegian teams took first and third, broken up by Russia in second. Yesterday's winner Jens Arne Svartedal and runnerup Tor Arne Hetland ended up a clear 3 seconds ahead of Russia I with Nikokai Pankratov and Vassili Rotchev. Poland had a notable relay result in sixth. Janusz Krezelok anchored his teammate Maciej Kreczmer's performance to put them less than 2 seconds behind Sweden's best team.

A few photos may be posted later today.
