I have never really consider myself as a runner. I was running during the summer as training for the winter. But I always liked the simplicity of running, to just go out in the mountains and nature and run.
And when I started to run more, my skiing improved as well.
I did my first ever world cup in Skyrunning in Limone Sul Garda, Italy in 2016 and I absolutely loved it. Since then, I have competed all over the world in some of the biggest and most prestigious mountain races.
In 2018 I won my first World Cup in Livigno and finished 2nd in the overall Skyrunning World Cup after Kilian Jornet.
In 2019 I did my first Ultra Marathon on La Palma Island, Transvulcania Ultra Marathon 76K and finished 3rd.
In 2021 I joined the Adidas TERREX team and it gave me a lot of motivation and inspiration to train hard and develop myself even further!
You can say that I was born with skis on my feet and my dream as a young kid was to compete for the national team. I was far from a talent but with a lot of hard work and determination I have done a lot of progression and made some of my dreams come true.
So in 2018, I finally raced my first World Cup, 50km in Oslo Holmenkollen in front of 100 000 people and finished 23rd. I finished the season with a 4th place in the Swedish national Championship.
I’m still enjoy skiing and it is a big part of my training during the winter

This is my office, gym, playground, place to escape and where I feel most at home. When I run or ski in the mountains, my worries and bad thoughts often disappears and be in the moment and do what I enjoying doing the most.
