Sport Background:

I tried a mix of sports when I was a kid but, but focused on troop gymnastics and football until high school. Then I went to a high school with focus on dancing, so that was my training during my high school years.

I moved to Lund(Sweden) to study a program to become a Physiotherapist and then started to do more endurance training, for example running races, the full distance of A Swedish Classic(90k cross country skiing, 300k road biking, 3k open water swimming & 30k trail running), The Women’s Classic(1/3 of the Classic-distance) and I ran my first marathon in 2012.

After my first child in 2015 I started with triathlon. And a year after my second child I qualified for the World Championship, Ironman Hawaii 2017. After that I decided to go professional and competed my first season as a professional triathlete in 2018. ☺

Greatest achievements:
  • Swedish Champion in Duathlon 2019
  • SM silver 2019 & SM bronze 2018 in Triathlon half distance
  • 12th at the Swedish Championship for the half marathon-distance (Göteborgsvarvet) and been winning a lot of local running races in Skåne (South Sweden).
Goals/main races this year:
  • Mexico (Ironman full distance)  24th of November
About paceUP!:

The unique thing about paceUP! is that you can do groups where all your training can be compared to others, so you do not have to practice or like the same sport to “compete” against each other. It makes it a great app to use for companies, as an updated version of walking competitions. A perfect way to get employees more active and with a more healthy lifestyle.

MOTTO

Challenge Yourself

Sport Background:

Handball player from the age of 10 until 22. Realized that running was the most fun part of the game, so then I was hooked in the running world. I live after the life quote “challenge yourself”, so after finishing my first marathon in 2013 the challenges just continues to get more long and extreme…

I did A Swedish Classic in 2016 & A Super-Classic 2017, that got me into triathlon. Done a few Olympic races and one half distance. 2018 I got the chance to be a part of a team finishing the Nordic Islands Adventure Race (trek/run, MTB, Pack Rafting, SwimRun, kayak, repelling, navigation) during 6 days. So endurance is my passion for sure!
