Nordic Skiing Worlds: Sweden's Calle Halfvarsson


February is primetime for ski competitions each year, and so it was in 2015.  FIS held its Alpine World Ski Championships during the first half of February, followed by its Nordic World Ski Championships the last half of the month.  Both events, of course, featured the usual cast of superstars ... like we like!

... plus silver medalist for Sweden, Calle Halfvarsson, doing some post-competition chill-out.  Sweden and Norway typically lead the medal count in Nordic skiing, which probably doesn't surprise you.  (See medal summary below.)
