Norway claimed their first gold medal at this year's Alpine skiing world championships by beating Sweden to win the mixed team parallel event on Wednesday.
Fabian Wilkens Solheim defeated Mattias Roenngren by 0.49 seconds to give Norway the decisive point in a 3-1 victory.
Sweden thought they had moved 2-1 up when Sebastian Foss-Solevaag stopped his run but the leg had to be re-run after it was ruled that Kristoffer Jakobsen had interfered with his trajectory.
