First Swedish Medal in Beijing

Biker Emma Johansson won Sweden’s first medal at the Olympic Games in Beijing on Sunday.

Johansson took silver after coming second under atrocious rainy conditions in the women’s 126 kilometer road race.

Meanwhile, a new Swedish record wasn’t enough for Sweden’s swimmers: in the 4x100 meter relay the Swedish men only came fifth.

And the women soccer players maintained their chances of advancing to the quarter finals after beating Argentina 1-0 in a bleak match.
