Frida Karlsson and Maja Dahlqvist are out of the Swedish national team.

The association has recently had dialogues with those active about the agreement and made financial and commercial improvements. Now there is no more to do without it affecting the overall plan for the team.

“We have a clear picture of the success concept behind how Sweden has developed the world’s best women’s team through the development we have had in recent years. I think it’s sad that Frida and Maja don’t want to be part of the national team because we see that our national team model has really been a strong contributing effect to the success,” says Lars Öberg, cross-country manager, in the press release.

Cross-country skiing is an individual sport, but team building plays an important role in the individual results and the regrowth of the sport. The ski association’s main task is to create good conditions for as many people as possible to reach their full potential. Today, the federation has three senior training groups that support and challenge each other at camps and gatherings. 

Anyone admitted to a national team squad often starts without or with a small commercial value built up over time with their own efforts and the federation’s support. The whole model is based on wanting to be involved and being prepared to give back and be part of developing those who come from below.

“Our strength is, and has been, that we as a team stick together and work together towards a set goal, and we are proud of that. We have come to where we are today because we have been consistent in our set-up and have strong sponsors who, like us, believe in and fully support the set-up. Even if the news is sad, it will give us opportunities to give others the chance to take the next step in their development. We have many talents who are ready to challenge, and if they get the chance to compete with the best and with the right support, I am convinced that it will make us even stronger in the coming seasons. Our common aspiration is to do good things even better, and in a team, it is always about inspiring and developing each other to become our best selves, says Lars Öberg.

When the winter and World Cup season starts, everyone will be eligible for selection. In order to compete in the Swedish colors, you need to sign an agreement with the federation and relate to the common rules and values that we have agreed upon.
