Sweden Nominates Absolutely Cracking Squad For JWM2020

Sweden seems to be aiming for a clean sweep at female distance races at FIS Nordic Junior & U23 Cross Country World Ski Championships 2020.

Particularly in that U23 sub-division, where athletes 21 to 23 years old participate.

See who are they sending to Germany next week:

Both Moa Lundgren and Emma Ribom are regular in Top 10 in the World Cup this season
But particularly striking is the decision to send Ebba Andersson to Oberwiesenthal for U23 rather than giving her a shot a beating the Norwegians and/ or Natalia Nepryeava at Holmenkollen 30 that is happening at the roughly same time? Could it be Ebba’s own decision?
Sadly for JWM fans, perhaps the biggest discovery of this season, a 20 year old Linn Svahn won’t be going – she has a strong chance to win the overall Sprint competition and will running in the World Cup
Frida Karlsson is also not included in the Swedish JWM squad – with not quite an articulate explanation that the team doctors would not approve. That’s a big loss in a different sense: Frida generates quite a media frenzy and her presence would guarantee heightened attention to the tournament
