Success for Sweden in orienteering

Sweden has had its greatest success ever at the World Orienteering Championships, winning ten medals: three gold, three silver and four bronze.

“It feels amazing. Particularly great with three golds for the women,” team captain Håkan Carlsson told newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

The goal for the Swedish team before the world championships in Chambery, France was five medals. The team is now on its way back to Sweden with double that number.
