Challenge Aruba Sprint win

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

It turned out to be a solid morning.  Obviously not being in the “real” Challenge race I wasn’t racing for money – or against a super strong field. It was more an opportunity to rev the engine, get a chip on and put the body through the paces of racing. I started with the swim […]

Life is good in Aruba

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

This might actually be one of my favourite race destinations of all time.  Aruba. A place that previously have been known from flipping trough travel magazines at the hairdresser. Flamingos and alabaster white beaches, blue waters and catamarans.  And triathlon? Yes. Its definitely a combination that works very well. It’s a Challenge race and true to […]

The Olympic Qualification process

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

A lot of you are asking whats going on and if I’m in the olympics.  I might have a nation slot (the points chase I did during the past 6months did work out for me) – but I’m yet to be selected to the Swedish Olympic Team. The Swedish Olympic Committee has it’s own standards […]

Last Olympic Points in Yokohama

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

So it’s finally here.  After two years the Olympic ranking will close and the startlist for Rio be decided.  I joined in late on the chase for points and found myself scrambling to catch up this past 6months. It’s been a phase where every race have been important, on paper easy enough. In real life […]

Mooloolaba World Cup

Saturday, March 12th, 2016

Back to back racing.  A year ago I would have given my arm for that combination on my calendar.  When Facebook tells you what you did a year ago and you see a picture of yourself tethered to the stairs in the local pool, running. Not fun. I much rather be on the streets of […]

Gearing up for Abu Dhabi

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016

It’s crazy how quick the time seems to disappear sometimes. They do say that it passes quicker with age, yet I’m to experience a 2hr Olympic Distance race to pass by quicker… It still feels, and will probably always feel, like a long day out there. When we arrived down here it felt like an […]

Stellenbosch wintertraining

Thursday, January 14th, 2016

  It’s been just over a month. Training is solid – and above all consistent. I’d like to say FINALLY! I’m here, I’m training, I’m building a base. I’m giving myself the opportunity to race well next year. And I’m getting a feel of what it’s like to be fitter and stronger again. But then… […]

2nd place at Islandhouse Invitational Triathlon

Monday, November 9th, 2015

After three stages and as many days of racing I ended up second to Gwen Jorgensen in the Islandhouse Invitational triathlon. The accumulated time after a 2nd place, a 3rd and a 1st place saw me some 30s backs to Gwen at the finish line. For a full race recap read Jené Shaws article on […]

6th in Tongyeong WC

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

There could have been a post here wishing the girls good luck and showing me spectate at Cyclocross nationals back home instead.  I was really close not to come here, as a fact I had already flown back home and thrown in the towel. The small strain that occurred on my last track session before […]
