Sochi Olympics - Day 16

Sochi Olympics - Day 16

Cross-Country – Men:  Alexander Legkov led home a Russian clean sweep of medals in the men’s 50 km mass start event on the last day of the Olympics. In the final and undoubtedly most grueling skiing event of the 2014 Winter Olympics from Sochi, Legkov finished ahead of compatriots Maxim Vylegzhanin and Ilia Chernousov in a four-way sprint for the line along with Martin Johnsrud Sundby of Norway. They received their medals in front of a rapturous crowd at the closing ceremony on Sunday evening.

The Winter Olympic Games in Sochi have been declared closed and the Olympic flag has been passed on to the city of PyeongChang in South Korea who will be hosting the 2018 Winter Olympics.
