Big Championship Winning Margins

Therese Johaug’s margin of victory today was pretty epic. Epic enough that FasterSkier included a list the winning margins in 10k championship events for the last 20 years or so. I thought it might be interesting to expand on that slightly. The following table lists winning margins for all 10/15km (men’s & women’s) interval start championship events (WSC & OWG) that I have times for. This expansion muddles things a bit since if you go back far enough you start getting the women doing 15km or the men doing 10km, so you do need to keep that in mind. But I still think it’s interesting to include them all. The table lists the winning margin and the percent difference.

Johaug’s winning margin isn’t the absolute largest on this list, only because of the aforementioned women’s 15km championship events, but if you sort by percent difference, hers is the largest by a fair bit.
