The Norwegian star believes that Finland is a “very tough” opponent in Sunday’s message.
Norwegian superstar Johannes Høsflot Klæbo has become accustomed to success, and the 15-kilometer traditional Olympic bronze that came on Friday didn’t seem to bother the man more. Of course, Kläbo was pleased with the medal, especially after his collapse in the combined race.
“Today I was just focusing on myself and specifically trying to compete against myself. That was a goal that I thought worked well,” the four-time Olympic winner said at a post-race international press conference.
The most emotional moment was seen right after the race, when Klæbo had a short video call with his grandfather. It is well known that Klæbo and his grandfather Kåre Hösflotilla have a very close relationship.
“I talked to my grandfather. That was great again, ”Klæbo said.
“I called to tell him we did it.”
Kåre Høsflot has suffered from prostate cancer and has undergone radiotherapy. The cancer of a loved one and loved one has been a hard piece to bite for a Norwegian star.
“It’s a tough place, of course, when he’s not here now, but I think he’s really happy with my result,” Klæbo said.
“We’ve talked a lot on the phone. It will be great to get home and see him. I’m really going to spend my time with him. ”
Traditional sovereignly won the interim starting race Iivo Niskanen always get praise from Klæbolta.
“Iivo’s technology is great. He opens up pretty hard, but still manages to push the top speed to the end, ”Klæbo said.
On Sunday, there will be a normal men’s message at the Zhangjiakou Olympic Games. Surprisingly, Norway is not the sovereign winner of the race and is also acknowledged by Klæbo.
“Russia is a really bad opponent, it has a really strong team. Finland is also a dangerous opponent, not least because of Niskanen. Iivo is in such good shape that Finland will get a lot of help with the message, ”the Norwegian star predicts.
