I started fencing at FFF in 1977 and with the exception of two years when I lived abroad, FFF has been my fencing club throughout my life. No wonder the club has long been my second home where I have several of my best friends. As chairman, I want all members to thrive and be given the opportunity to develop to their full potential both as fencers, comrades and people.
Seeing fencing at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 was the starting shot for fencing in our family. Soon we found FFF and after that I became a fencing parent and am now involved in the club through various tasks.
I started with fencing in 1973 and still train on Mondays. I have a daughter and a son who fencing and a brother who won the Olympics, not to mention my mother who kept order at FFF as a secretary – so I grew up with FFF. In short, my commitment to FFF is passionate.
Fencing since 1984 – was part of the cadet, junior and senior national team in Herrvärja. Long experience of elite sports and grassroots sports – working as a sports teacher in high school for 20 years.
Former elite fencer in sword with both national and international merits. Works as a specialist physiotherapist with a focus on sports medicine and orthopedics. Rich experience of training development and injury rehabilitation. Previously worked for the Swedish Olympic Committee with responsibility in the top and talent program.

I started fencing in 1978 in Örebro and after a move to Stockholm I fenced at FFF for a few years in the 90’s, today I am an exercise fencer at the club and also have a daughter who fences and the sport gives us a lot of joy together. In my profession, I work with communication issues.

I have been exercising for ten years and fencing a couple of days a week. Have a 23-year-old son, Jona, who also fencing in the club and sometimes we train together = Happiness!
