Cheers as Sweden’s Olympic heroes arrive

2014-02-25, kl. 10:33

After a two-hour delay, two SAS aircraft chartered by the Swedish Olympic Committee landed at Stockholm Arlanda shortly after 7 p.m. As the first Swedish Olympic athletes entered SkyCity at Stockholm Arlanda, the cheers and applause grew.

A long stream of athletes and coaches passed into the area and were cheered as they approached the stage. The greatest applause and whistles were for Charlotte Kalla.

“Swedavia is a proud and pleased sponsor of the Swedish Olympic Committee, and we are all especially proud and pleased with your brilliant performances. With two golds, seven silvers and six bronzes, you have made this the most successful Winter Olympics ever for Sweden,” said Lena Rökaas, acting airport director at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

After the reception at Stockholm Arlanda, there was a bus trip to Kungsträdgården in central Stockholm, where the celebrations continued.
