Bjoerndalen, who won two golds in Russia, including the
individual 10 kilometer sprint, said it would be a mistake to
quit when he was in top form and wanted a shot at another world
title on home snow when the 2016 event takes place in Oslo.
"It feels right to continue, I cannot stop now," Bjoerndalen
told VG. "I have more to give and I really want this."
Bjoerndalen had not won an individual race for two years when he
arrived in Sochi but his ruthless training regime, which
included living in a secluded trailer next to his training
grounds, paid off.
Bjoerndalen, who owns a record-equaling eight Winter Olympic
golds, also has 19 world titles.
