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

Started my paddling career as a young boy in my home town in southern Sweden. I was, as many kids in my age, trying a lot of different sports including kayaking, swimming, football, hockey. When I turned 14, I quit all the other sports and started to focus on just kayaking. I joined the national team at 15 years old and had my first international competition the same year. Now I'm one of the oldest one on the team and have a lot of experience from both World Championships, Europeans and World Cups. But I still waiting for my first Olympic Games.
