The ROC's Alexander Bolshunov won the men's cross-country freestyle event on Saturday to capture his third gold and fifth overall medal at the Winter Olympics.
The event, which was originally a 50km race, was shortened to 30km and delayed by an hour due to weather conditions at Zhangjiakou National Cross-Country Skiing Centre.
Bolshunov won the event in a time of 1:11:32.7, while the ROC's Ivan Yakimushkin earned silver in 1:11:38.2 and Norway's Simen Hegstad Krueger grabbed bronze (1:11:39.7).
