The 21 May, 1950 the Stockholm City Relay took place. The race was a thrilling duel through Stockholm with a jubilant audience along the streets cheering on the runners. It was an even race and our club IK Ymer was by no means the favorite in the relay. When it was time for the last leg over 5k, it turned out that Gösta Jacobsson from our team IK Ymer, was up among the top three.  

When the runners turned into the Stockholm Olympic Stadium, the audience was ecstatic. Now it would be decided what team would win the relay! Gösta was very strong and out ran the other runners and our team managed to win the entire Stockholm City Relay. At the finish line, the team leader Sten Bussqvist opened his arms to receive Gösta Jacobsson.
