Sweden has achieved its first cross-country world cup victory thanks to duo Ida Ingemarsdotter and Stina Nilsson, who narrowly saw off their Norwegian rivals in the ladies team sprint in Otepaa, Estonia.

Ingemarsdotter and Nilsson, who have won six gold medals between them, clocked a time of 16:11.13 in Otepaa, taking the win by 0.8 seconds from the Norwegian duo Ingvild Flugstad Oestberg and Maiken Caspersen Falla.

This means Sweden claimed victory in the only ladies team event of the Cross Country World Cup.

”I knew that Ingvild Flugstad Östberg is very strong and made sure to take a good position behind her,” Nilsson told Swedish Radio’s sports department.

“Both Stina and I have more to achieve and this boosts our self-confidence,” Ingemarsdotter told Swedish Television.

The victory had Sweden showing good form ahead of next month's world championships in Falun, western Sweden, where the team sprint takes place on February 22nd.
