This is a video i did with upcoming Danish singer. I really like and hope you all enjoy it
One more year because i love skating:-) I have decided to do one more year of competetive skating and i tell you it was not an easy decision.
I feel like i am getting old but with no injurys age is just a number:-)
Its expensive to skate but who needs stuff when you have goals and love your life!
last season was not my best if you look at the shortprograms but i skated great freeskates almost the whole season and practice was really progressing.
with age comes knowledge and i know how to train and how to stay in shape and i will keep learning more and use it all to get better.
We already have great plans for next seasons programs and i think it will be amzing. Also really looking forward to Europeeans in Sweden!!!
See you all from the ice and thanks for all the support =)
World championchips are over and its been amazing. My short program didnt go as planned whit a poped flip and just trippel dobbel combo my scores was to low to qualifie. I knew before that i needed almost clean program since there is only the best skaters there :)
After europeeans i was very dissepointed with my skate because it felt like i should have done better, but with disease and bad competions before maybe I was not at my best. The difference now was that my preparation was great i hade great training period the time before and did everything my best ( food, sleep, training) and i was in great shape. All can miss one jump i can say I did my best and i am proud of the effort. Also the skating in Japan was so great and I love the short program. the Japanese fans are great!!! So supportive and appreciative. I want to say thank you to all the fans. And all at home how writen and showed there support. I'm not saying I didn't want to skate the free lake last worlds but sometimes you have to accept that you can make mistakes.
(more thoughts coming about my future as promised)
Im in Saitama Tokyo for world championships. Everything is great, great arena great audiance alredy at practice and the town and contry is amazing.
The practice leading up to this competition has been perfect and i feel in the shape of my life so no matter how it goes i can say i did all i could. I know its very small marginals in this sport and especially in a short were one mistake could mean no free skate. But i will enjoy this and give it my all and hopefully show all that i can.
Today i hade som time to do some touristing so me and my mom who is here for support went in to Tokyo town and at the central station we got to see the Emperor of Japan =) (a good sign i think )
Not the best picture but very cool =) We didnt go for to long just to se a little and do something else. Under is a picture of a cool theater.
Tonight i have practice in the arena again and hopefully and probebly there is a big croud of some thousend just watching the practices and really make all skaters feel welcome.
This summer i will try something little bit different, not knowing how my on training will be yet. I get the chans to do one week as coach on Gotland and i am really looking forward to it. I work as a coach during the season a lot to off course, but the intensity of a camp is deffinatly different and i hope i can develop some good progress.
I will only work week 28 so hopefully i will get to work with many happy and great skaters. Its nice to see skaters alredy signing u for me and i hope more will come.

Been off the ice for more than a week after europeans because of sickness and low motivation. After the dissapointing skate in budapest i felt really sad and low so i took some time of and we made some changes and made a big surprise witch we tested this weekend and will be finnished for the nordics =)
I knew the free skate would be hard since i havent really been doing full skates for almost 4 weeks now but the goal was to finaly get a good short program since that have been a struggle this season. And i did it! We went easy with only trippel dubbel and steps in to 3toeloop and 3axel it was not perfect but only minor errors so a big step forward.
I finally found out how hard a free skate can be :) i normal dont have that big of a problem doing the free skate but i am not in my best program shape stamina wise =) the jumps was ok some small errors but overall an ok perforance just really tired. And a great finish in second place after a great young russian who was really good.
I know motivation should come from within but i can tell you i really needed this!!! And i also have a great team and fantastic teammates. Anita also got silver so we hade a great comback and we will be ready for worlds!!! =)
I was at the big house of future this weekend it was the biggest conventioncenter ever with next years clothes and equipment. My mother owns and runs a shop for figureskaters in gothenburg so she was there to find next years collection and i can tell you there was a lot of cool stuff. Skaters get ready we found so many new stuff and many great ideas.
I loved looking at all the new inventions for physical training and it was nice getting a way on something other then figureskating for once =)
So many people have asked my what happend this week and you know what, i have no idea. I was really prepared and hade made great practices and preparations before and i felt like i was in control. I know i was a bit sick but thats no excuse i could still train and i hade no problems doing the programs in training. I wasent nervouse or to excited i felt in control and relaxed. It was just not my day, unfortunattly i had a bad day on the worst time =( The worst feeling comes from knowing i was in great shape and could do great and then everything just fell apart.
Today i was at the doctor and found out my little cold had turned in to or had always been a flu with sinusitis so i got penicillin and some other medicin, he was not happy i hade trained and competed with it. I will take some time of to get healthy and find my motivation again.
The motivation part was made a lot easier by all the fans who really showed there support even after a disaster of a skate. Speciall thanks to Fummy, Mayako and Shiho and all the rest who keep beliving in me.
Took some pictures today, it's a bit booring it's just practice day so no people :)
Dressing room, warmup room and ice rink. Really big rink and everything looks great :) The practice is hoping good just to let you know.
