Anton Grahn is the Junior World Champion in Sprint, Emil Danielsson was 3rd at the U23 World Championships, and Evelina Crusell is one of the best junior skiers in Sweden.
“Anton contacted us already this summer and asked if he could join a training camp. Then it conflicted with his rollerskiing competition, but in November, he attended our training camp in Vålådalen. He is keen to try long-distance skiing. It will be a lot of fun to see Anton this weekend,” says Pro Team Director Oskar Svärd, and continues:
“We have signed a three-year contract with Anton, so when he races a long-distance race, it will be in our race suit,” says Svärd about the 18-year-old athlete.
“After the Junior World Championships, the focus has only been on Ski Classics, and it will be great fun to try something new and meet the big guys now in these races. It’s long, longer than I’m used to, but I think it should fit me well. The first time, you want to be there and see and learn,” says Anton Grahn to SVT Sport.
