No. 3 Swe Cup Sprint Gällivare

Until today it’s been one year since I started in a sprint race. And it felt strange; I didn’t know what pace to start in and had to look at the girls starting before me to find a good rhythm.

I tried to ski controlled in the qualification, and then I took the start in the quarterfinal and kept the lead throughout the race. In the semi and final I was more defensive but I think I got a good result in the end (no. 3) – I used my powers right and felt stronger and stronger after every start.

I think its important to get some competitions, even if its not the discipline I have trained to be successful in.

Now I hope to get a good classic distance race over 10 km tomorrow and then – Livigno – here I come!

Can you fint the two team-skiers in the picture?
