Sweden Restructures

After what they considered to be a poor Olympics, Sweden has selected new coaches and its team structures for its cross-country teams for the 2002/2003 season.

Per Erik Roennestrand will be head coach for a large A team, consisting of both the men's and women's "normal" skiers as well as sprinters.

Roennestrand, having background in sports education and the military, has worked with the Swedish cross-country teams over the last few years as a waxing expert.

Ola Rawald will head the development team, he coached the sprint team last year.

No team selections have been made yet.
