Frenzel played Akito like a chump. He let Akito hold the lead and just chilled in second spot, till, BAM! right at the end Frenzel poured on the juice and shot by the tired leader. How did Akito not see this happening?? Strategy, man, strategy.

Watabe actually did pretty well. Just look at what happened to Evgeniy Klimov. He started the cross country race in third place behind Watabe and finished dead last. Congrats to Frenzel, Watabe and Krog.
