Circumstances can change quickly. Viktor suddenly had an opportunity, due to his fast racing last winter, to join an elite Swedish team which he thinks is the right vehicle to help him toward his eventual goal of being a regular on the World Cup circuit. He figured it was an opportunity that might not come again, and he thought he'd better jump on this train before it left the station.
So Viktor is spending this summer and fall putting all his efforts into the advancement of his ski career. He's living back home in northern Sweden, just eating, sleeping, training, and living as close to the edge of exhaustion as he can get without going over the edge. It's a hard lifestyle that requires 100% commitment. I admire Viktor's willingness to put everything he has into his dream, and I'm enjoying watching his progress on his blog. You can too, at:
(ps. Being able to read Swedish will facilitate comprehension of Viktor's blog.)
