Olav Lundanes won the gold medal in front of Anders Nordberg. Thierry Gueorgiou won the bronze medal.
The world champion was very satisfied with his race today.
- I chose to take the safe routes but I was a bit unsure about some of the route choices, said Lundanes.
Lundanes lost a few seconds in the last round to his team mate Nordberg.
Now he promises that the Norwegian team will be a force to reckon with at the relay Sunday, Lundanes will run one of the legs.
Anders Nordberg said that todays course was physically hard and that he made a small mistake.
- It is fun to compete with Olav Lundanes. The Norwegian team effort has been great so far this WOC.
