    Good race Ivan, I know you would have preferred a medal but there is no doubt that was a solid race and congratulations. It looked very difficult.

    WOW! Great race, history is being made! I just hope the American’s can make some history for themselves.

    Team Canada definitely gets a medal in the “worst looking uniform” event. Not just in XC, but the biathlon and speedskating suits I saw were just as horrible!
