Beckie Scott and Sara Renner get silver medals in the women's classic sprint at the Torino Olypmics today. Sweidish teamates AnnA Dahlberg and Lina Andersson took first by 0.6 seconds. In third, 2.3 seconds behind, was the Finish team of Aino Kaisa Saarinen and Virpi Kuitunen.
The Canandian silver is even more impressive given that Renner broke a pole on the third lap shortly before the tag zone. Renner slowed as she received a new pole, but Scott was able to bridge the gap after the tag.
