Win my board!
Last nights full program
Feels like last night was a dream. Being pretty nervous I was so happy to hang out with the kids, they calmed me down (: I loved the clip the team had put together in the start and hope someone will be happy about getting my board. Thanks SVT and Lilla for a great night, hope to see you again soon!
Lilla Sportspegeln tonight!
When I was a kid and watched this TV-show I would always dream about being in it myself. Tonight that’s where I will be, words can’t describe how excited I am!
Wish me Luck!

Snow, minus 5, bluebird and crazy. 4 words to describe this last weekend I spent with Betsafe up in Åre to watch Jon Olsson Invitaional and Betsafe Alpine Challenge. I’m so impressed with these skiers and what they can do, how hard they slam and what great people they are.
I got to take my snowboard out for a ride with some friends I haven’t seen in ages and let’s just say my abs are sore today from laughing so hard and so much. Now I’m heading to see my physio to find out how much damage my ankle has taken from being in the slopes (and dancing on the tables) ;). Watch the video from the contest above and check some sick shots from the event here: LINK
Lisa Francke and World Games!
My friend Lisa called me from the States yesterday! I was so happy to hear her voice and what she had to say! It looks like we both will be attending the World Games in Colombia this summer!!
She is a waterskier on the Swedish national team so we will get to spend almost two weeks together at this huge contest! I was so thrilled to receive the invitation after World Cup since I’d already been told that unfortunately I wouldn’t get an invite to the Games. So happy things changed since I now will get to see my friend who I haven’t seen since she got a scholarship and moved to America 3 years ago. Definitely a girl you wanna keep your eyes on!

Sorry for a lousy update, the blog is moving platforms and thats the reason why it’s been down for a few days. But it looks like it should be alright now!
The last few days I’ve been spending with my family in Stockholm and seeing my new Physio, Britta, at the Swedish National Sports Complex Bosön. What can I say other than she is absolutely amazing and we’ve been working with acupuncture, massage as well as strengthening exercises. After a week of anti-inflamatry pills as well I feel so much better and I can’t wait to get back on my board. First up is the MRI tomorrow to really see what is up with my ankle and then I’m off to Åre with Betsafe for some snowboarding! It’s been about a year since I last played in the snow so I can’t wait for that either! Hopefully my MRI will give me good news and I can get cleared for getting back in the water since I’ve already booked flights to head back to Xtreme Gene on the 9th of April. I’ve been watching so many edits and dreaming about what to try next, plus hearing the stories from my friends who are already down there I feel like I’m sitting on nails. Thankfully I’ve been by the O’Neill Office TWICE since I’ve been back and they’ve cheered me up a lot with fresh summer clothes.
Well that’s a city update from me, talk more soon!
