Karolina Hedenström: “A Big Thank You To Britta”

Karolina Hedenström, Lager 157 Ski Team, is happy to get her first-ever Pro Tour podium at Jizerská50.

Karolina started Ski Classics Season XIV with a strong form with 9th place at Bad Gastein Criterium, 6th at La Venosta Criterium, 12th at Pustertaler Ski Marathon, 10th at Prato Piazza Mountain Challenge, 6th at Engadin La Diagonela, 9th at Marcialonga, and finally started the second part of the season with an impressive 2nd place at Jizerská50. Furthermore, she is leading the Youth bib competition.

Hedenström was super happy at the finish line in the Czech Republic:

“I had a really strong feeling since when I came back from Marcialonga, and I’ve just been taking it easy at home, training and chilling out,” and continues.

“Today, I felt really strong all the way from the start. I was late for the start, and I almost missed that. But I guess it seems that it’s the key for me, so I’m going to be late for the start next time as well, I think,” and laughs when interviewed for SC Play

The Lager 157 Ski Team’s athlete is leading the Youth bib competitions and looks forward to that.

“This was one of my main goals for the season, so I guess I just have to go home and keep doing good work and try to keep in good shape until next weekend.”

You are in the footsteps of Britta Johansson Norgren. How does it feel to be now on the podium?

“That’s actually one of the reasons why I felt so good; it was because of her. I met her a couple of times at home the past week and got some good tips from her and always felt very safe and confident when I am with Britta, so I want to say a big thank you to her!” concludes Karolina Hedenström
