Golden frenzy on Swedish turf

STOCKHOLM (AP) Swedes celebrated Sunday in the streets of Stockholm, waving the Swedish flag and chanting “Olympic Gold! Olympic Gold!” after their hockey team edged rival Finland for its first gold medal in 12 years. Dozens of supporters gathered in Sergel Square immediately after Sweden’s 3-2 victory, braving freezing temperatures to mark the joyous occasion. Car horns could be heard throughout the capital, with Swedish flags and hockey jerseys flying from car windows. But the big party will have to wait. A planned celebration for the team at a Stockholm park Sunday night was canceled because of restrictions on flights out of Turin during the closing ceremony. In the past, such celebrations have attracted tens of thousands of fans, including the crowds who gathered in 1994 when Sweden last won Olympic hockey gold.
