Alexander Legkov (RUS): "This is priceless. It's more valuable than my life, I can't express how I feel. For 15 years I've been trying for this result. My main tactic was just to save energy, stay in the leading group and try to control the strongest competitors. I'm just so tired, I can't comprehend what's going on."
*The number: 33
Russia ends first of the “medals board” with 33 medals including 13 gold medals.
