Sweden sizzles

ELIN Holmlov and Erika Holst scored two goals apiece as Sweden routed China 6-1 on Sunday in the preliminary round of the women's world ice hockey championships in Hameenlinna, Finland. Sweden, the 2006 Olympic silver medalist but only fifth in last year's worlds, was playing Canada yesterday for a place in the second round from Group B. Canada crushed China 13-1 on Saturday.

The Canadians, nine-time champions, are attempting to reclaim a world title they lost to the US last year in Harbin, northeastern Heilongjiang Province. In other games on Sunday, Russia beat Japan 3-1 in Group A and Kazakhstan edged Switzerland 2-1 in Group C.
