A Second Swedish Gold Medal

Sweden is a country with a relatively small population. We cannot compete with the most populous nations in the number of competitors in the Olympic Games, nor in the number of medals won. Today, however, Sweden won a second gold medal. It was Jenny Rissveds who won gold in the ladies' mountainbike race. This is great. I like it all the more, because it was an unexpected gold medal. Unexpected successes have a special sweetness.
