I grew up in Varberg and Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden. When starting law school I moved to Stockholm in 2002 where I have been living ever since.
Growing up I was into soccer and tennis, and later rock climbing and surfing. During my military service I found out I had talent for endurance and running in particular but it was not until years later at the end of my studies I started running seriously.
As late as 2010 I found triathlon. My first triathlon was an olympic distance race that went beyond all my expectations. It was from thereon not just about running fast but to run fast after also having swum and cycled. I was hooked!
In 2011 I tried different distances all the way up to the ironman distance. After a successful season focusing on the half ironman distance in 2012 I have continuedto focus on the half ironman distance which by now has become my passion in triathlon.
