"We're both moms, and we have shared lots of things over the many years".
The race was Lee's final Olympic event in her career.
"So it is hard to comment on the combined team, because in this situation it worked, but it was out of our control, so I can't really comment on the future at this time". "I can't believe it just happened, but we've been feeling so good these entire games and just having it happen at a team event means so much more to me than any individual medal ever would".
"Maybe I'm biased, but one of the best rivalries in sports and especially in our game", said Canadian forward Emily Clark, who played college hockey at Wisconsin. They've won five gold medals in sliding events, which ties the record for gold medals at a single games.
Tenth in the World Cup standings, the diminutive Bjoergen has collected a gold (4x5km relay), silver (15km skiathlon) and two bronze (10km freestyle and team sprint) in Pyeongchang.
"I had a dream about that (breaking the record), but you never know".
Jamie Anderson soars to silver in big air for US
Anderson survived the blustery conditions to claim gold on a day when only nine of the 50 runs were completed cleanly. Although Anderson will be disappointed to finish in second place, she did make history with her performance.
The end may be approaching, but Bjoergen still has one more medal in her sights to add to her seven gold, four silver and three bronze ones.
"I think coming together and showing the world that we can be unified through sport, hopefully that's a small step for something bigger".
Norway's team of Martin Johnsrud Sundby and Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo, took the lead at the halfway point and held on to win in 15 minutes, 56.26 seconds.
Bjoergen surpassed compatriot Ole Einar Bjoerndalen's tally of 13 Winter Games medals in biathlon, earning her 14th in a furious relay that ended in a shock win for Americans Jessica Diggins and Kikkan Randall.
"I could have come here and said I was satisfied with one gold medal", Klaebo said, "but that is not how this game works".
