The women's cross-country skiing team sprint competition at the Torino Games was thrilling for fans from start to finish. After an exciting race, it all came down to the final sprint where Sweden took first place, with Canada in second and Finland finishing third.

Still, one of the most memorable moments happened during the race. When Sara Renner of Canada broke one of her poles in the cross-country skiing team sprint, Norwegian head coach Bjørnar Håkensmoen lent her one of his (albeit 12cm too long). This act of fair play and sportsmanship allowed Renner to help her team win silver, and dropped Norway out of the medals.
