Athlete background info last updated 2017-06-28 03:21:16
Took a surprise bronze medal at the sprint and silver medal at the middle distance in the World Championships on home ground in 2013 - after barely being among the outsiders ahead of the championships. Has since managed to get several Top 10 results in the World Cup and two 9th places from EOC in 2016, but as of June 2017 not yet managed to climb up onto the podium again after 2013. Gold medal from JWOC in 2008 in Sweden.
