The facts are this: with Johaug in the 4 x 5 k relay mix Norway remains a force late in the race when the skate legs ensue. Today in Oberstdorf, Johaug took over the race and made it a relative yawner up-front. The real action was for third place where the U.S. and Finland threw down.

Over 20 k of racing came down to the final straight when Krista Pärmäkoski and Jessie Diggins drag raced. Pärmäkoski crossed first securing third for Finland, while the U.S. settled for fourth. In this episode: 45 minutes of all you can take 4 x 5 k relay.
