Norway's Ole Einar Bjoerndalen disappointed with relay performance

Norwegian skier Ole Einar Bjoerndalen says that he is "disappointed" with his country's performance in the men's relay at the Winter Olympic Games.

Norwegian Olympian Ole Einar Bjoerndalen has said that he was "disappointed" with his team's performance in the men's relay at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi on Saturday.

Norway had looked to be in control of the race early on, but 40-year-old Bjoerndalen lost time on the skis before Emil Hegle Svendsen made four mistakes in the final shooting.

Bjoerndalen told reporters: "For sure we're disappointed as a team we wanted to take a medal or win.

"We started really good on the relay today but on the last shooting we got a penalty and this unfortunately could happen to anyone."

He leaves the games having won two gold medals in the 10km sprint and mixed relay events.
