Paralympics: Modin takes silver in the sprint

Blind skier Zebastian Modin has won a silver medal for Sweden at the Paralympics, in the cross-country sprint.

Modin had won bronze in the long-distance cross-country on Monday, but is far more pleased with silver in the sprint, saying he has worked for this all year.

Three partially-sighted skiers were over 32 seconds behind Modin, who is completely blind.

Favourite Brian McKeever took gold, reports Swedish Television.
