Sweden's Kalla wins first Pyeongchang gold

Goalie Matt Dalton was born in Canada but will represent South Korea at the Olympics

Sweden's Charlotte Kalla took home gold and Norwegian cross-country skier Marit Bjoergen took silver in the women's 15-kilometer skiathlon. Kalla prevailed by 7.8 seconds in the 15-kilometre race in Pyeongchang on Saturday, marking the third time she has topped the podium at an Olympics.

But the 37-year-old Bjoergen, who won three gold medals in Vancouver in 2010 and three more in Sochi, proved she's still a dominant figure in the sport despite entering the competition ranked seventh in the world in the event. It was her 11th medal - six gold, four silver and a bronze.

Saturday's games at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics feature the first match of the joint North-South Korean women's ice hockey team, as diplomacy takes center stage at the start of the games.

Only Andersson has won more Olympic medals among Swedish women, with seven.

Bjørgen had previously been on 10 with Raisa Smetanina, whose tally of four gold, five silver and one bronze had been won between Innsbruck 1976 and Albertville representing the Soviet Union and Unified Team.
