Again, again

Photo: Georg Hochmum It was not long time ago I had my first podium and now it is race time again. The thoughts are running crazy and my head feels like it´s on a roller coaster and shifting focus in a rapid speed. I’m nervous the days before and the tension..Read More

Wow

The day started in the night. I could not sleep. Nervous as never before. The body was exploding with expectations. The nervousness was good, not the kind of anxious one. More just the “I want to go”-one. I am back in Åre. It was in the middle of the winter...Read More

So close – but so far away

Photo: Scanpix I was skiing better than ever before. World Championships and the Juniors were just coming. I was really peaking at a great time. Then I really got to feel how it feels to just be there, but at the same time really not. It all started with SG..Read More

Ops

I was training in Zermatt and my speed career was just starting. I don’t like waiting but if you are skiing speed you just have to get used to a low tempo on the trainings and to not talk about on racedays. Whatever. I was maybe a bit stressed because..Read More

Focus

In Crans Montana. Junior World Championships again. I was so focused. I was just going to win this day. That was for sure. A few difficult gates, but a very enforced course report saved my day! A good coach that knows what you need and that you feel that can..Read More

Surprise

It was January 2010 and my slalom somehow seemed to just get better day by day. I was ranked 24th and it was the JWC on the schedule. The slope was flat, but injected and conditions were so nice. After the first run I was on 6th place which was..Read More

My first real World Cup race

So the season started. I was 17 years old and had just had my first autumn with the Swedish Ski Team. My best result the year before on a European Cup was a 50th place, like 11 seconds after the winner. This year I started with a 2nd place. And..Read More

The small world cup

The race was called “The Small World Cup” and for me, preparing for it felt like a World Cup at that time. I was 12 years old and was competing the last year in the B-class. Skiing was getting more and more important in life and at this time I..Read More

Feeling the sweet taste of winning

I was 6 years old. It was one of my first races in alpine skiing. We drove to Hofors and the excitement in the car was something you almost could touch. It was so strong, so intense. My whole family was with me. I was competing against 9-year-old girls. I..Read More

My first pair of skis

It all started at Kungsberget, where I first learned how to ski. I was about 4 ½ years old and had been skiing for some time, using my brother´s old equipment. And for that reason, I really needed a pair of skis. Mum, dad and I went into the store..Read More
