Equipment

She was sponsored by Rossignol, and skied with Rossignol X-IUM skis for both skate and classic disciplines. Her boots were also named Rossignol X-IUM's, and the bindings are Rottefella R3's. Her boots and bindings are of the NNN (New Nordic Norm) system.

2002 Olympics

At the 2002 Olympics, she was in the women's 30 km classical event, when one of her poles broke. Luckily, her coach was nearby, and she took his pole, which was too long. She kept on racing and near the end the coach came back to give her the right size pole. She caught the pack of skiers and ended up winning gold by 4.5 seconds in that race.
