SOCHI, Russia - Cross-country skier Marit Bjoergen, from Norway, captured the women's 15-kilometer skiathlon for her fourth Olympic title.
However, Bjoergen's gold was tempered by grief.
The brother of teammate Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen died "suddenly and unexpectedly" a day earlier, according to Norwegian Olympic officials.
Bjoergen, joined by teammates, sobbed in an embrace after the race.
"We really did a good race for him today," Bjoergen said.
Bjoergen held off silver medalist Charlotte Kalla in the final straightaway to win in 38 minutes, 33.6 seconds, successfully defending her title from Vancouver. Norway's Heidi Weng won the bronze.
"One gold was my goal, so now I can relax a little bit," Bjoergen said.
