“I felt strong in the prologue but I lost little bit in my semifinal. I had to change the tactic for the final and wanted to be second before the last downhill and push hard on the home stretch. In the final Bolshunov was skiing very fast right from the start. I had to push hard to keep up with him. Ustiugov attacked before the last uphill and I had to be working hard to keep the position where I wanted to be,” said Klaebo.
