For the first time we have a guest from Russia in our podcast.
Veronika Kalinina is from Moscow, today a member of IFK Lidingö.
For Veronika, it was quite given that she would do sports, both parents leading her on this track. The orienteering sport was also quite close to the family. - My dad is and has been very good at rogaining, says Veronika Kalinina. She has a year left as a junior and has set her sights on defending her JVM gold this summer when she goes to Turkey where JWOC is held. She won the gold in the long distance last summer in Denmark, but she was not entirely surprised by the success. - The goal was definitely to win that gold and I had a good feeling that day, says Veronika Kalinina.
Per Forsberg went to Gothenburg to meet Veronika Kalinina where she studied at the University of Gothenburg during the fall and winter. She has been running for a Swedish club for many years, has been in both Hellas and OK Södertörn before switching to IFK Lidingö where she is thrilled. - It's a fantastic club with wonderful runners and leaders. Besides, I also have Johan Rundesson as my personal trainer, says Veronika Kalinina. Listen to Veronika Kalinina in Radio O-Ringen podcast # 135 here. This podcast is in English.
