As the Winter Games draws to a close this weekend, we felt it was well worth re-sharing this incredible moment for Minnesota and Team USA.

Jessie Diggins, of Afton, produced arguably the result of the Olympic Games for America, clinching the country's first ever gold in cross-country skiing, winning the women's team sprint.

She did it in the most sensational circumstances possible, sidling up on her flagging Swedish rival and delivering a sucker punch right on the line.

The moment is made all the better for the play-call by Duluth's Chad Salmela, a coach at the College of St. Scholastica who was announcing for NBC at the games.

"Here comes Diggins! Here comes Diggins!" will follow him for the rest of his life.
