Athlete Biography

Took up triathlon in 2002 when my horse got injured and I needed to get rid of excess energy. And then I got stuck into it and decided to found out if I ever would be able to compete at an international level. Without a swim background learning how to swim freestyle was a big challange(and still is today). I grew up in a medium sized swedish town where I graduated from High School. The same year I went down under to Sydney as a “year off” before starting UNI. I thought triathlon would be a great thing to do as a break from the studying. My mum worked in Sydney for two years which made it possible for me to live down here. After 7 months I came back to europe but decided to do another block of 6 months. And that followed by a third 3 months trip down this year. So for three years now I have lived in a constant summer, which I really don’t have any complaints about….
