    Marit Bjoergen's recent bronze pushed her Winter Olympic medal count to 14, dethroning fellow Norwegian legend Ole Einar Bjoerndalen, who has 13 in biathlon.

    Bjoergen's finished third behind a stunning USA gold in cross-country skiing's women's team sprint free.

    "I think I'll need to have time to myself and look behind me and see how I've been able to do this. It's still hard to understand it when I'm standing here," said Bjoergen after the race.
