SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Sweden won the Olympic gold medal Saturday in the women's cross-country relay, a race that covered 20 kilometers.

The Swedish team was made up of Anna Haag, Ida Ingemarsdotter, Charlotte Kalla and Emma Wiken.

That quartet won by a half second over Finland. Germany took the bronze, finishing nine-tenths of a second behind Sweden.

Norway was the defending champion in this race and had failed to medal in it just once in the last nine Olympics. The Norwegians finished fifth, almost a minute out of the lead.

Kalla became the first athlete at the Sochi Olympics with three medals. She won a silver in both the skiathlon and the 10-kilometer classic race.
