Weekend Sports Wrap

It has been a stellar weekend for the Swedish swimming team at the European Championships in Eindhoven.

The biggest surprise was 14 year old Sarah Sjöström’s gold win in the 100 meter butterfly, knocking out Dutch favourite Inge Dekker. Both Therese Alshammar and Stefan Nystrand took bronze for the 50m freestyle. The men’s 4 x 100 medley team not only won bronze and a place at the Olympics, they also broke the Swedish record with a time of 3.36,85.
