LISA Camp in Beirut April 2017
Three committed coaches were looking forward to a camp with swimmers from Beirut. We had swimmers that could not swim to Youth elit. The focus of the camp was to enforce basic technical skills and sell our love of swimming. We succeeded!
Big Thanks to Laudy Asseily and my fellow coaches Salima  And Eric Metropole. Thanks to Glen for his insights!

Three years ago I had a "blackout" and fell down a staircase 2 meters and landed on my head splitting my cranium open from left to right ear sending me in to a coma. When I woke up 3,5 weeks later I didn´t know where I was nor what had happend. I was paralyzed in the left side of my body.

Thanks to a lot of will power, a strong body thanks to swimming, help from angels watching over me and many many friends helping and supporting me in all ways I am now back on my feet again. THANK YOU! Alone I would never had made it to where I am now. There is still things to improve but thank you for being there for me.

LENNART MENTOR! Remember the name. A man with a goal and dedication. In January 2014 he came to me and asked him to help to get back to his "old swimming". He had just started swimming again after 30 years break and wanted to be a champion. He is on a good way now. First he joined a camp, then online coaching and then he came with me to Tenerife Top Training for the ultimate camp experience. It has payed off and late August he participated in his first World Masters Championhips. After braking several Swedish records in Back and fly he took a BRONZE medal in his last race the 50m backstroke! But he is looking for more and are now coming to my next camp on Tenerife in October. CONGRATULATIONS & WELCOME LENNART MENTOR!

Another success story with swimming online!

This is Karin, 56 years. In 1976 when she was 18 years old she stopped swimming rather frustrated with a 1.18 in the 100m backstroke. As an adult she started enjoying swimming again next to running. Four years ago she joined my online training and also some camps. Last Sunday she swam a 1.18 again in the 100m backstroke, lowering her previous best from last year and the German record in her agegroup with 2 seconds!
NOT so frustrated anymore! Enjoying her swimming, reaching amazing results with online training. CONGRATULATIONS KARIN!

THANK YOU Swedish Swimming Federation for organising and inviting me to another Masters Swim Weekend! This time in Jönköping, the city where I won my first National Championships title in 100m breaststroke 40 years ago! It was a fun weekend with mostly new-comers to swimming, working on technique in all strokes, starts & turns, conditioning and seminars. Big warm thank you to Harriet, Barbro and Susanne for your valuable support!
