Marit Bjorgen hasn’t won a sprint race in her last four attempts yet she still feels she hasn’t lost her edge.

-There are a lot of people who have been close before in classic sprints. I do not feel that I have lost my touch. It was just too bad that I couldn’t show my full potential today. I was happy with the prologue and my body felt good even though I’ve been sick, says Bjorgen.

In the Drammen sprint semifinal the three time world champion had about as much bad luck as was possible. Her binding released on her left ski and with just one ski even the world’s best skier is without a hope.

-It was good to be back on skis again and it felt great. It was just too bad that my binding opened up. I felt like I had a lot to give. I would have had to have skied hard to have made it to the finals but it was sad that I didn’t even get a chance. Its hard to say if I could have taken them since I didn’t even make it to the finish says the Norwegian.
