Silver for Team Sprint ladies

Sweden has taken silver in the ladies' Team Sprint event at the world ski championships in Italy. Charlotte Kalla and Ida Ingemarsdotter finished behind the US team, bringing home Sweden's second medal.

"It was a tough day at work" said Ingemarsdotter to Swedish Radio Sport afterwards. "We should be very pleased; we've won a medal, not lost a gold", and Kalla agreed that they had to fight all the way.

Finland were third, and Norway fourth.
