New gold for Sweden

Sweden had not won a gold medal in Olympic Winter Games since 1994. So far in these Games they have won 3 gold medals, all of them in the sprint events in cross-country skiing. Björn Lind was on the winning team in the mens team sprint, and today he won the individual sprint ahead of the French surprise - Roddy Darragon.

This picture I took during the mens team sprint. Lind is chasing Norwegian Tor Arne Hetland and Russian Vassilij Rotchev on the finishing straight. When they crossed the finishing line, Lind was ahead of both.
