Forsberg Lured By Gold

from Reuters,

It was the lure of more Olympic gold that prompted Forsberg to attempt a comeback and earn a place on the Swedish national team he has led for almost two decades.

“It’s definitely great to be back playing against the best players in the world,” a smiling Forsberg told reporters after Sweden opened the defense of its title on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Germany. “I feel ok, it’s a work in progress.

“I played in the Swedish league, maybe 20 games this year and I’m scoring better-and-better every game.

“But at this stage of my career I don’t think I’m ever going to be really healthy again so I’m just going to do my best and see how it goes.

“I don’t know what I’m doing here but I’m still battling. Anytime you get the chance to play in an Olympics it’s the best thing you can do.”
