No Bronze For Women’s Hockey team
Sweden’s women’s national ice hockey team failed to win bronze at the World Ice Hockey Championships in Finland. They lost 4-1 to the host nation on Sunday. It was another disappointing finish for the silver medalists from the 2006 Turin Olympics.
Last year they only managed fifth. It was the eighth meeting for the bronze medal between the nations. Finland now holds a 6-2 advantage in those games against Sweden and has nine bronze medals to its credit. In the final, the United States took Gold, beating Canada 4-1 to win back-to-back World Championships.
