Ski sprint silver for Sweden

Sweden's Ida Ingemarsdotter has taken silver in the sprint, at the world skiing championships in Val di Fiemme. She came in second after Norway's Marit Björgen.

Ingemarsdotter says she is a little disappointed at missing gold "my feeling are all over the place", but said that getting a medal is still a big achievement.

Norway also took bronze, and the other Swede finished fifth.

In the men's final Sweden's Emil Jönsson was fourth despite an early lead.
