Winter Olympics appearances (overview)

Oliwer Magnusson and Emma Nordin were the country's flagbearers during the opening ceremony.[3] Meanwhile biathlete Elvira Öberg was the flagbearer during the closing ceremony.[4]

With eight gold medals and 18 medals in total, this was Sweden's most successful Winter Olympics of all time in terms of both gold and total number of medals, beating the previous records set in 2018 and 2014, respectively. It marked the first time Sweden won medals in six different sports at the Winter Games, and they managed to win gold medals in these sports. Additionally, the country won its first (and second) gold medal in freestyle skiing, first gold medals in speed skating since 1988, and became the first country to win medals in all three events in curling at the same Winter Olympics.
