Russia's Larissa Lazutina finally has an individual Olympic gold medal. Give an assist to her bad attitude. Lazutina, after frustrating near-misses at Albertville and Lillehammer, won the 5-kilometer classical cross-country race Tuesday at the Nagano Games. Slicing through a heavy snow, Lazutina gave Russia its 100th Winter Games gold medal and added to the silver medal she won in the 15-kilometer race Sunday.
