How do you think Sara Hagström thinks about her second and shared gold at JWOC Italy? Does the Swede wish she had been faster in the last metres?

First Hägström won the Sprint. Then she was just three seconds from gold on the Long Distance. The last individual distance ended with gold shared with Sina Tommer.

“This feels even bigger than the gold I took alone on the Sprint”.

– Oh?

“Sina and I have become good friends during JWOC. We live on the same corridor in Hotel Lion”, she says. Most of the runners are staying at two specific hotels, and Sweden and Switzerland are two of the teams at Hotel Lion.

The Swede had a poor start in the Final today. She missed two and half minutes on the first flag.

– You didn’t give up?

“It was challenging! Others could make big mistakes too, I thought. I just went on”, she says.
