Norway wins gold in women's 4x5K relay at worlds
LAHTI, Finland (AP) Norway won the women's 4x5-kilometer relay Thursday at the Nordic world championships.
The Norwegians were tied with Finland at the halfway point, but Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen opened up a lead of 56 seconds on the third leg.
If a Norwegian wins gold in Saturday's 30-kilometer freestyle race, it would make the country the first to win all women's events at a single Nordic world championships since Russia did it 20 years ago.
Stina Nilsson of Sweden took silver, with Krista Parmakoski of Finland third.
