3,5 weeks La Pared and Playitas combo

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

After having spent most part of the winter in Stockholm it was great to finally back the bikes and head south. Fuerteventura for me is quite well known, close to feel like my backyard in terms of training venues. To mix things up a bit we started to week not in Playitas as per normal […]

ITU congress 2016

Monday, December 12th, 2016

Attending the ITU Congress in Madrid was my first visit to this “other side” of sport.  Still being active I find it very interesting to see the whole picture and what is happening behind the scenes to make our sport, and the World Triathlon Series happen. The main purpose of my visit was a meeting […]

Two out of three in the Bahamas

Saturday, November 5th, 2016

Unfortunately it wasn’t a repeat of last year. Damn stage races are tough, and if you come in a little bit fragile the body will hurt. The season, that now has stretched over two years, has started to take it’s toll and my body didn’t feel the love. I didn’t pull upp well after Aruba […]

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 […]
