Gold medalist meets last finisher after half hour

  • Roberto Carcelen is the first Olympian of Peru but was the last one to finish in the 15km cross-country race. 

    Carcelen took 30 minutes to catch up with gold medalist Dario Cologna of Switzerland, who greeted him at the finish line. Reports suggest that Carcelen now resides in Seattle and broke a rib during training only a few weeks ago.
