Sweden won their fourth gold medal of the 2010 Winter Olympics on Wednesday when they finished first in the Men's Cross-Country 4x10 km Relay.
Marcus Hellner pulled away from Emmanuel Jonnier of France and Martin Koukal of the Czech Republic on the final lap, and built a quick lead.
By the time he reached the stadium, Hellner has such a large lead he was able to stop and and take a Swedish flag to wave as he enjoyed the final meters of the win.
"It was wonderful, getting to parade into the finish," Hellner said. "It's something we've all dreamed about doing. It's perfect, we couldn't ask for anything more."
Norway, the pre-race favorite, took home the silver, finishing 15.9 seconds behind Sweden, and Czech Republic won the bronze.
The men have one more event left in Vancouver, the grueling 50km race on Sunday.
