25-year-old Jennie Öberg won her first World Cup gold in the ladies freestyle sprint in Rybinsk in Russia on Saturday.

"It's crazy. I don't know what happened. The body felt great and the skis were perfect. I am so happy!" said a very pleased Öberg to Swedish Television, just after the race.

It is the first time she has even reached a World Cup final, and very nearly she had not made it there, as she fell in the quarter final race.

"I panicked in the quarter final, but I managed to get up straight away and went for the semi finals, that was all I could think about," she told SVT.

This is Sweden's second sprint gold on the women's side. Last week, Stina nilsson and Ida Ingmarsdotter won the team sprint in Otepää, Estonia.
