Northug defies the Swedish Ski Association – wants to rent the wreck

– Regardless of whether there is a reorganization or not, there must be room for Perry Olson. Now I asked him if he wanted to help me, says the skiing star, referring to his cross-country project.

The skating world was stunned when it became known at the end of April that Olsson, considered by many to be one of the best skaters in the world, would not be allowed to continue on the Swedish national skating team.

Northug, who won 13 World Cup gold medals and two Olympic gold medals, had Olson as his personal coach. He was very surprised by the shooting.

– He will participate in setting the conditions for the new lubrication team. Now it won't be like that, which is strange before an important World Championship season, says Tronder.

– Will the Swedish national team's greasing team get worse now?

I think so, for sure. They miss a lot when he loses his experience. It's hard to replace a skilled guy like Perry Olson. “I cannot understand why one of the best grease companies in the world has ever been allowed to continue,” Northug answers.

Olsson worked with the Norwegian national team between 2003 and 2020. At one point, Northug was one of the best skaters in the world. Northug says the Swede meant a lot to his success.

-It was crucial for me to get good skates. It was safe in ski tests and had good communication with the ski factory, Northug says.
