Who has been your greatest motivator in your career?
My greatest motivation has always been the people I’m training with. The last 3 years I have been training alot in Turkey (Gloria sports arena in Antalya) with my international swimming club Energy Standard with swimmers from all over the world. The swimmers and coaches I work with there really motivates me to push myself every day. I have fun even during the most horrible and painful sessions.
During the lockdown situation, how are you training?
I have been able to continue like normal here in Sweden. Obviously I’m not competing and travelling as much as I planned to do. But I can go to the gym and swim every day.
How do you feel about the Olympics 2020 being delayed due to the current pandemic situation? How are you coping with it?
It was the right decision because so many athletes around the world have not been able to prepare like they need to for the Olympics. I have been able to train like normal like I mention. But it is what it is. I try to see the positive things about this. I finally have time to just be home in my apartment and organize my basement and closet, etc. I guess that this pandemic was the best thing that could happen for the environment also because pepole can’t travel everywhere, anywhere at anytime. Air quality in Stockholm is amazing at the moment.
