Linn Sömskar

Sweden

THIS LADY LOVES ROCK’N’ROLL AND IS ALSO A STAR ON THE LOIPE

Roller skiing is for 99% of the cross-country elite part of their summer training program. For ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ Linn the wheels are by far her favourite medium: 5 Gold medals, one Silver, one Bronze at both of the last roller skiing World Championships. And she’s more and more successful at transferring her sprinting strength and impulsiveness onto the snow. With the goal of becoming similarly successful like she already is on the tarmac. At the World Championships dress rehearsal in Seefeld she came fifth in the sprint. The Redster athlete also had a plan B to her cross-country career: to become a vet, as Linn loves cats. But for now she’s a real athlete, motivated by finding her performance limits: “How fast, how strong can I be?” Pure self-empowerment! That’s the best motivation you can have. Go for it, Linn!
