ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Reuters) - Norway, anchored by the indomitable Marit Bjoergen, won the women's team sprint classic gold medal at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games on Wednesday.

Bjoergen paired up with Ingvild Flugstad Oestberg to bring Norway home in 16 minutes 04.05 seconds to win the country's fourth cross-country skiing title at these Games.

Aino-Kaisa Saarinen and Kerttu Niskanen took silver for Finland, 9.09 seconds behind.

Stina Nilsson beat Germany's Denise Herrmann in a pulsating dash to the line to claim bronze for Sweden with Ida Ingemarsdotter 19.77 seconds off the pace.
