Sweden wins men's cross-country skiing relay 

Sweden has won the men's cross-country skiing relay after Marcus Hellner pulled away on the last leg for his second gold medal of the Olympics.

Hellner drew past Emmanuel Jonnier of France and Martin Koukal of the Czech Republic on the final lap Wednesday. He also had plenty of time to collect a Swedish flag to wave as he paraded down the final straightaway.

Sweden finished the 4x10-kilometer race in 1 hour, 45 minutes, 5.4 seconds.

Petter Northug of Norway used a furious final leg to win the silver medal for Norway. The Czechs took the bronze.
