Jonsson Takes Complete Medal Set
Sweden celebrated it’s third most successful Biathlon World Championships of all time thanks to Helena Jonsson. The 24 year old took a complete set of medals from the championships in South Korea, a gold, a silver and a bronze.
Only the World Championships in 1997 and 2001 where Magdalena Forsberg took two golds and a bronze were better.
Jonsson took bronze on Sunday in the final race of the Championships, the mass start, which was won by Russia’s Olga Zaitseva.
Jonsson also won gold in the pursuit and silver in the mixed relay.
”Being so far away from home, there is much less pressure on us, than at the World Champs in Östersund last year. That’s probably the reason why we’re more successful here. Now i am just tired. In my mind and in my legs,” Jonsson said.
The 24 year old has now set her sights on winning the overall World cup, which Forsberg won six times in a row, and also a gold medal at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
