Sweden took its first gold medals of the Sochi games over the weekend, in the men's and women's relays. Charlotte Kalla won her third medal of the Winter Olympics as she came from almost 30 seconds behind to win the sprint to the finish in the 4x5 kilometre women's relay. Sweden now has nine medals in total, with more in prospect this week. Radio Sweden spoke to Stefan Elofsson, editor of Swedish Radio's sports department, for his take on an historic weekend.
