The Swedish Olympic team got its first medal today. Emma Johansson won silver in bicycle. She won silver in the Olympic Games eight years ago as well, and has been called "Silver Emma" ever since. The new silver medal will reinforce this nickname. (Four years ago, she came sixth.) We did, of course, hope she would win gold, but silver is still an excellent result. It is also a nice twist on the nickname.
