Dahlqvist had finished second behind Sundling as Sweden made a clean sweep in the women’s sprint on Saturday, Emma Ribbon finishing third.
In the team sprint final’s last leg, Dahlqvist and Sundling were up against each other again.
“I feel like we’ve been doing it so many times,” Dahlqvist said about sprinting it out against her compatriot.
“If we don’t win we want them to win, so it’s (mixed feelings), but it’s fun. And she (Sundling) is so strong so it’s fun to win.”
Dahlqvist, 28, stayed in second place, saving some energy for the long sprint.
She and Svahn had spotted a camera position next to the course where she should shift gears and go for the first place.
“That was my attacking point,” Dahlqvist said.
“Linn was like ‘just go by the camera man and you will take it’. That was the only thing I was thinking about.”
The plan worked, Dahlqvist pushing past Sundling to win 0.73 seconds before the other Swedish team.
“When I saw that she was behind Jonna and attacking by the camera man I was jumping, (realising that) this is our day,” Svahn said.
