The United States came second, while Sweden finished third in a competition comprised of four super-G heats followed by four in the slalom.
Also in Åre, Janica Kostelic reclaimed the overall World Cup title from Sweden’s Anja Persson after gathering a record number of points.
Turning to golf: Sweden’s Johan Edfors clinched the title at the 1 million dollar TCL Classic in China Sunday. Edfors, whose previous best performance was a tie for ninth at the Madrid Open in 2004, fended off Australian Andrew Buckle for a one-stroke victory. The win couldn’t have come at a better time, either; the 30-year-old has been struggling to keep his playing card on the European tour, but the win gives him a two-year exemption to play on the Tour.
