Economics studies and an Olympic bronze medal | 2006 |

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.
