Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

As a young boy Emil threw all his energies into different kinds of sports, among which, football and wrestling where the sports he liked the most. At the age of 15, Emil decided to focus on wrestling. With Anders Andersson as his personal and national team coach by his side on an everyday basis, Emil´s development as a wrestler was enhanced rapidly. Close to Emil´s heart is his family and his home wrestling club in Helsingborg, with Joachim Andersson (Emil´s first coach) in the lead, all to which he is very grateful for being supportive and an important part of Emil´s success. To date, the Baku 2015 European Games is the biggest tournament for Emil to participate in. It is a great honour for a young athlete like him to represent Sweden at this major championship and will be a memory for life.
