You began skating at the young age of eight and reached the pinnacle of success by becoming the 2015 Nordic silver medalist, the 2015 Denkova-Staviski Cup bronze medalist and a three-time Norwegian national champion. Walk us through this spectacular journey and tell us how it all began?
Anne Line Gjersem:
I got introduced to figure skating after my mom saw an advertisement for skating school in the news paper. I was 8 years old when me and my twin sister started skating and it was so much fun. I fell in love with the sport right away. The first year I skated once a week. The following year our ambition got higher and the goal was to go to the World Championship. Therefore, I started training between two and four hours a day, six days a week. It was so much fun training and I started competing in national competition, and then smaller international competitions. When I was 12 years old, my goal was to go to the Olympic Games. I started training with a small group in the Olympic training center where the focus was on basic athletic training. On the ice I improved. When I was 17 years old I moved to Sweden alone to train with Ela Magnusson. After a few years of hard work I finally reach the goal of going to World Championship and the Olympic Games.
