The Swedish triathlete Lisa Nordén won a silver medal at the London Olympics Saturday after a thrilling sprint finish. With only seconds left of the race, Nordén and Switzerland's Nicola Spirig were neck and neck, but Spirig managed to hold on to finish only fractions ahead of the Swede.

"Lisa is by far the happiest of the medalists. She is jumping and celebrating after two hours of competing," Bengt Skött at Swedish Radio Sport said after the race finished.

Sweden has now won three silver medals at the Olympics.
