Sweden's sixth Olympic medal

Wrestler Johan Eurén brings home the bronze

Swedish 120-kilo wrestler Johan Eurén lost to Estonia's Heiki Nabi in the third and final semifinal. And in the match for the bronze against Loseb Tjugosjvili from Belarus he won the first round and lost the second.

But after the lots were drawn it was clear Eurén would have a chance to defend himself, which he did well, winning him the bronze.

"It's fantastic! I was a little nervous about the last match because I have never beat him before," Eurén told Swedish Radio News.

Eurén's bronze is Sweden's sixth Olympic medal.
