The cross-country skiing event of 7.5 kilometers of classic cross-country skiing and another 7.5 kilometers of freestyle was dominated by Scandinavians - gold was won by Norway’s Marit Bjoergen, silver by Kalla and Heidi Weng of Norway took the bronze medal.
Kalla won the gold medal in the women's 10 km individual for Sweden at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. She also won a silver in the team sprint event with Anna Haag at the same games.

Marcus Hellner secured the second Swedish medal - another silver - at the Sochi Olympics in the Men's Skiathlon; 15 km Classic + 15 km Free during day two, Feb. 9, of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. He took silver after Dario Cologna. Hellner won this distance at the last Olympics in Vancouver in 2010. Third in Sunday's race was the Norwegian World Cup leader Martin Johnsrud Sundby.
