Bjoergen captured her 11th career Olympic medal, breaking a three-way tie with Raisa Smetanina of Russian Federation and Stefania Belmondo of Italy.

"I am very happy to take a medal in my last Olympics and still to be there", Bjørgen said.

After Saturday's finish, Bjørgen's career haul is six golds, four silvers and one bronze. "I am happy to be here at my age".

Meanwhile, Germany's Laura Dahlmeier, 24, won her first gold medal in biathlon, taking the women's 7.5km sprint, ahead of Norway's Marte Olsbu in second place and Veronika Vitkova from the Czech Republic in third.

The Korean squad have been written off as contenders in the Olympic women's tournament.

In speed skating, the racer to watch is Dutchwoman Ireen Wust, hoping to repeat her victories in 2006 and 2014 with a win in the women's 3000m.

Kalla has now equalled canoeist Agneta Andersson as the Swedish woman with the most Olympic gold medals, with three.

Her collection includes three gold medals from Vancouver 2010 and three from Sochi 2014.
