No, we haven’t applied for ”Sweden’s got talent” or anything like it – that much fun you’ll never have whilst following us!
Actually, the word ”talent” is used by the Swedish Olympic Committee (SOK) for young athletes whom SOK think have a chance at competing for Sweden in an Olympics within the next 4-8 years. These, so called talents, are selected into the ”Talent Programme” at SOK and get support through fundings, coaching and training.
We’re telling you all this because we have some great news for us and our fans. All members of Team Eriksson have been selected to be a part of the ”Talent Programme”, which is a great opportunity for the team. It’s great to know that the most important organization within Sweden for Olympic sports believe in us and want to help us on our journey towards the 2018 Olympics.
As if we weren’t psyched enough for the upcoming season, these news have definitely made us impatient and we can’t wait for the season to start in Baden, Switzerland, at the end of August.
Now we’ll get back to our pre-season training. See you soon!
