Felix Loch - GER Luge Medalists by Olympics

Times:
Run 1 — 52.185
Run 2 — 51.964
Run 3 — 51.613
Run 4 — 51.764
Total — 3:27.526

The German phenom was expected to win easily in Sochi, and he did just that, winning his second consecutive Olympic gold medal in the men’s singles competition. He came into the second day of competition leading by a healthy .294 seconds, and never looked back. He posted the fastest run of the games by starting out day 2 with a blazing 51.613 second run.

In a sport where older athletes can still compete at the highest level (silver medalist Demchenko and bronze medalist Zoeggeler are ages 42 and 40 respectively), the 20 year-old German looks to have many more gold medals left in the tank. But for right now, he’s just happy to have won this gold.

This is overwhelming, simply great. This was the crowning achievement of a perfect season.

Martin Johnsrud Sundby - NOR Cross-Country Skiing Medalists by Olympics

Time: 1:08:16.8

Sundby officially won the bronze, but will he get to keep it? Sundby crossed the finish line .1 seconds before Russia’s Maxim Vylegzhanin, but it appeared that he may have impeded his progress right at the finish line. The Russian team argued this to the judges, and the jury upheld Sundby’s medal. But the Russians won’t give up that easy. They have filed an appeal to the International Ski Federation, the sport’s highest authority. The final ruling is expected soon.

Here is Sundby’s take on the situation:

I feel bad about the whole episode. This was never, ever my intention. I didn’t know where I was. Luckily it didn’t influence the results… I feel really upset about it.

Marcus Hellner - SWE Cross-Country Skiing Medalists by Olympics

Time: 1:08:15.4

He won two gold medals in Vancouver, and was so close to getting his first in Sochi, but he ended up settling for silver. He closed the 10 meter gap between himself and Cologna during the final sprint, but just couldn’t make it past him, finishing less than a second behind the winner.

After the race he had nothing but good things to say about his competitor:

Dario was a little bit stronger, I couldn’t follow him. I felt a bit stiff in the legs at the end. I regained my strength again, but he was too strong.

Dario Cologna - SUI Cross-Country Skiing Medalists by Olympics

Time: 1:08:15.4

The Swiss athlete was a big question mark heading into the games. He just underwent surgery in November to repair an ankle ligament and had only returned to competition in January. Needless to say, he proved that he still has what it takes to perform at the highest level. He held off Hellner on the final straight-away to win by .4 seconds. This is his second gold medal, after winning one in the 15km freestyle event in Vancouver.

He said on his huge victory:

It’s a very big day, and very emotional for me to come back and win a gold medal, my biggest thing I won so far.

Jenny Jones - GBR Snowboarding Medalists by Olympics

Score: 87.25

Great Britain had never won an Olympic medal in a snow event until the 33 year-old veteran hit the Slopestyle course. Jones wowed the judges with her second run and made British history.

After everything was over, an ecstatic Jones said:

It’s still sinking in, the history part. Hopefully I’ll be in a few pub quizzes now.

She also posted a “cheeky” selfie on her Instagram.
