According to Magnar Dalen's (The Swedish head coach) "reliable sources" Mika
Myllyl? will start in the 15K classic. Magnar also says that the Swedes
look good, and are getting to their peak.
Magnar has six favorites for the race: Alsgaard, Hjelmeset, Estil from
Norway, Elofsson from Sweden, Myllyl? from Finland and Ivanov from Russia.

The sport news knows that Myllyl? is definetely on start list, but the
final decision of starting is made tomorrow morning as he's still bit
unsure about his condition.

The afore-mentioned start list1 looks quite interesting and makes
Alsg?rd bit favourite as he'll start last.

1 partial start list for men's race can be currently (will disappear
and get replaced with something else once the race is over) found at
<URL:http://www.yle.fi/cgi-bin/tekstitv/ttv.cgi/273/> and for women's
race at <URL:http://www.yle.fi/cgi-bin/tekstitv/ttv.cgi/272/>.

My guess is that he'll start. Although I don't really agree with the ones
who claim that Myllyl? is just saying he's ill to keep the focus off him.
OK, the trick has been used before - and if he wins... :-)

Yes, especially considering the really strong finish he made in Otep??
where Elofsson reportedly led by two seconds or so when it was only 400
meters still to go.

/Tomas - who is delighted to see that there were two golds for the Swedes at
the JWC in ski-O.
