Economics studies and an Olympic bronze medal | 2006 |

Save favourite 8 Mar March 2019

Anna Ottosson had decided to retire from skiing within the next couple of years. She knew that the Olympic Games in Turin would be her last chance to win a championship medal. Still, she chose to study economics part time parallel to her training for the Olympics.

– By studying at the same time as I was training, I activated my brain, was forced out of the sports bubble and could relax during the competitions, she says. It was a successful combination and Anna won her much longed-for Olympic bronze medal.

In the spring of 2007, she was awarded a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Mid Sweden University.
