PodcastsThe Devon Kershaw ShowThe Devon Kershaw Show: To Question, or Not to Question, Bolshunov’s Epic Skiathlon Win

Devon KershawFebruary 7, 2022

We’re back with a recap of Russian Alexander Bolshunov’s dominating victory in the Olympic 30-kilometer skiathlon. We break down the dramatic start to the race, the Russians’ epic performance, Iivo Niskanen’s heroic effort to hang on to a bronze and the huge time gaps we saw to even some of the sport’s biggest names. And we talk about doubts about Bolshunov’s success.

We’ll be back periodically during the Olympics — send questions and comments to devon@fasterskier.com and nat@fasterskier.com.

And read a Russian news story about a politician calling for the revocation of Nat’s press credential here.
