Gold & Bronze

Marcus Hellner

Sweden won two medals in the men's 30 km pursuit race, also called the skiathlon, at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver yesterday. Marcus Hellner won the Gold, and Johan Olsson took the Bronze, after one of the most exciting ski races I have ever seen. It was perfect team work in a individual race that landed Sweden two medals. At one time Olsson led by thirty seconds and further back Hellner and Södergren did their best to slow down the rest of the field. It really was an amazing win.

How exciting to watch all of these wonderful athletes. Many countries have reasons to be proud, whether their countrymen and women won medals or not. Congratulations to all the Swedish athletes, esp. to these wonderful medal winners.
