Bronze for Sweden in Liberec
Sweden’s Charlotte Kalla brought home a bronze from the women’s cross country relay of the Nordic World Ski Championships in Liberec, the Czech Republic.
After gradually having erased a 24 second gap to Germany’s Claudia Nystad, Kalla caught up with her during an uphill stretch.
At the finishing stretch Kalla was neck and neck with Nystad, who finally managed to get her ski boot slightly further over the finishing line and thereby pinched the silver. The gold went to overwhelming favourite Finland.
