Cologna wins men’s 15K freestyle cross-country

Switzerland’s Dario Cologna won the men’s 15-kilometer freestyle

cross-country race at the Vancouver Games in his Olympic debut.

Cologna collapsed across the finish line after completing the

course in 33 minutes, 36.3 seconds Monday.

Italian Pietro Piller Cottrer won the silver, and Czech skier

Lukas Bauer won the bronze to go with the silver medal he won in

the 15-kilometer classical style race in Turin.

The results were provisional as some lower-ranked skiers had yet

to finish.
