Krasnaya Polyana, Russia (SportsNetwork.com) - Swiss cross country skier Dario Cologna easily won the men's 15-kilometer classic race on Friday for his second gold medal of the Sochi Olympics.

Wearing short sleeves on another mild day at the Laura Cross country Ski and Biathlon Center, Cologna beat Sweden's Johan Olsson by 28.5 seconds for his third Olympic gold.

Sweden's Daniel Richardsson finished 10.3 seconds further back.

Cologna won the 15-kilometer race in 2010, when it was run using the freestyle technique, and captured his second Olympic gold in the 30-kilometer skiathlon on Sunday.

He finished Friday's race in the slushy snow in 38 minutes, 29.7 seconds.

Olsson won his fifth Olympic medal and Richardsson his second.

Noah Hoffman was the top American finisher in 31st place. Canada's Devon Kershaw was 35th to lead his country.
