RIGA, Latvia (AP) -- Sweden shut out defending champion Czech Republic 4-0 Sunday to win the World Ice Hockey Championship and complete a unique double three months after capturing Olympic gold.

It was the eighth world title for Sweden, which had eight Olympic champions on its roster. In the Winter Olympics, Sweden beat Nordic rival Finland in the final. No team had managed the elusive double in international hockey. There have been six previous occasions when the Olympic tournament and world championship were played as separate tournaments in the same year.

Sweden was missing one of its top goalscorers, Mika Hannula (four goals), who was suspended one game after cross-checking Sidney Crosby into the boards in the semifinals against Canada.

It was pretty boring game, Czech Republic wasnt even close to score one single goal
