Silver for Swedish men in the Team Sprint

Sweden's men also took silver in the Team Sprint on sunday, after being narrowly beaten by the Russian team.

Marcus Hellner and Emil Jönsson won Sweden's third medal in the ski world championships in Italy's Val di Fiemme.

Bronze went to Kazakstan, just ahead of Canada, since favourites Norway had been eliminated in the semi final.

After Jönsson reached the finishing line, he said to Swedish Television that he had mixed feelings. "It would have been fun to stay ahead, but I'm also so happy that we got a medal."
