Here are some comments from the Junior World’s pursuit champions.

Petter Northug Jr. is Norway’s undisputed champion in the oldest junior class. During the junior Norwegian Championships he won every race there was and at Junior Worlds he has started in much the same fashion by winning the pursuit.

In an earlier interview he stated that if he managed to hang with the leaders till the skating portion there would be no one that could hang with him from there. The 19 year old followed up on these comments today.

-They tried to pull away from me several times and I thought a few times I would have to let them go. Luckily I was able to just tough it out and hang with. In the final stretch I got out front and managed to glide in the last 10 meters. It was huge. There might even have been some tears of happiness, says the Norwegian.
