Swedish national team training at altitude in Livigno

The Swedish national cross-country ski team has chosen Livigno, Italy, as the backdrop for an intensive two-week altitude training camp. This initiative brings together key members of the national team and Team BAUHAUS, including names such as Linn Svahn, Jonna Sundling, and William Poromaa, who are gearing up for the upcoming World Cup season.

Jonna Sundling, Frida Karlsson, Linn Svahn, and William Poromaa are some of the skiers at the training camp in Italy.

With its captivating beauty and challenging topography, Livigno provides an ideal training ground for these elite athletes. Situated at an altitude of approximately 1,800 meters above sea level, Livigno in September offers an optimal environment for roller skiing and running in hilly terrain. 

The Swedish national cross-country ski team is making the most of this opportunity during their camp, scheduled from September 7 to 22, as part of a long-term investment in altitude training supported by the Swedish Olympic Committee (SOC).

National team manager Anders Byström sheds light on the rationale behind this altitude training endeavor, stating in a press release:

“It is based on requests from our athletes, but also because we want to explore altitude training more extensively than we have in recent years.”

The Livigno training camp primarily features roller skiing and running sessions amidst the stunning, hilly terrain. Altitude training demands caution, and the Swedish team is taking a meticulous approach, employing individualized assessments that monitor parameters such as sleep patterns and resting pulse for each skier.

While September sees the Swedish national cross-country ski team engaged in camps at multiple locations, with sprinters in Meråker, Norway, and BAUHAUS women in Bruksvallarna, Sweden, focusing on specific aspects of their training, Livigno stands out as the preferred choice for altitude training. This comprehensive camp plan is a product of collaborative efforts between coaches and athletes.

As National team manager Anders Byström explains: 

“Right now, we have several camps going on simultaneously. The plan is designed so that the teams are sometimes divided, men separately and women separately, but also a division in Team BAUHAUS and A team, respectively. The reason is to get higher quality and coach density at certain gatherings, which the skiers have requested.”
