Cologna wins men's 30K skiathlon at Sochi Olympics

Dario Cologna had the strongest finish to win the men's 30-kilometer skiathlon at the Sochi Olympics

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Dario Cologna had the strongest finish to win the men's 30-kilometer skiathlon at the Sochi Olympics on Sunday, showing he's back to full fitness after a season disrupted by an ankle injury.

The Swiss cross-country skier pulled away from a quartet of skiers at the top of the final uphill section and then held off defending champion Marcus Hellner of Sweden on the final straight.

Cologna finished in 1 hour, 8 minutes, 15.4 seconds for his second Olympic gold medal. Hellner was 0.4 seconds behind to win silver, with Martin Johnsrud Sundby of Norway taking bronze.

Cologna is a three-time overall World Cup winner. He needed surgery to repair an ankle ligament in November and only returned to competition last month.
