Norway totally dominated this Team Sprint but behind, Finland showed an interesting race. The skier of the Team Rossignol, Aino-Kaisa Saarinen, confirmed her good shape (5th of the skiathlon, 4th of the Classic 10km) whereas the fight for the 3rd place between Sweden and Germany was tightened. It is Ida Ingemarsdotter from Sweden which takes it finally.

I've done many relay races and this was the most exciting race ever. I'm so happy I had these youngsters with me. This team, it's like, amazing."
