SOCHI, Russia - One of the few places the Russians were disappointed at these Games was in cross-country. The host nation had won only two silver medals, in men's relay and team sprint. But all of that changed Sunday, the final day of the Olympics, when Russia swept the men's 50-kilometer race. Alexander Legkov outsprinted his teammates to win the gold medal. Maxim Vylegzhanin edged Ilia Chernousov in a photo finish by .07 of a second. FRAMEWORK: Best images from Sochi Somewhat surprising was the performance of defending champion Oetter Northug of Norway.

The injury was so gruesome that Stewart later said he "damned near passed out at every doctor visit" when the leg was examined. Despite being one of NASCAR's biggest stars, and a co-owner of a team, Stewart also raced the smaller sprint cars at short tracks nationwide for the sheer joy of it. But the Iowa crash abruptly ended his season and required Stewart to undergo three surgeries and months of physical therapy.

The cross-country skier entered Tuesday's sprint free event as a heavy favorite and was hoping to end a 38-year medal drought for the U.S. in the sport.

Bjoerndalen, of Norway, won his 12th overall medal and seventh gold. He is tied with fellow Norwegian cross-country legend Bjorn Daehlie for most medals and should break his record when he competes later in the men's and mixed relays. Bjoerndalen, 40, also became the oldest gold-medal winner, breaking the mark of Canadian skeleton rider Duff Gibson, who was 39 when he won gold in 2006.
