The camp location was Scandic Elmia in Jönköping, Sweden. A beautiful place with all the facilities in one place.

A big thanks to the hotel Scandic Elmia, local association IK Hakarpspojkarna and municipality for having us this week. You have been amazing

The camp started on Monday when all the athletes from Denmark, Sweden and Norway arrived. In the a afternoonan opening ceremony was held. After that a few games to get to know each other.

Tuseday and Thursday were big training days when every athlete did three sessions; swimming, bike riding and running. They were divided into three training groups after their age. A big challenge for the athletes were to get coaching instructions in norwegian, danish or swedish. 

On Wednesday we got a nice company of one of the worlds best long-distance triathlists Åsa Lundström. Åsa, who lives in Jönköping, told her about herself and what she thinks is important to consider when practicing triathlon. After shifting training and talk by Åsa, the young triathlists rode to Axamo to borrow the local fixed triathlon track that IK Hakarpspojkar use once a week at the local event "a triathlon midweek". The relay was a given success and there were a bunch of tired and happy triathletes who together rode home again.

The mix relay. In teams of four everyone swam 300 metres each a 4k ride follo wed by a 1k run. The triathletes gave everyting they had, had fun and cheered on each other. A great session!

On Friday, the groups cycled a distance round adapted to experience and bikehabits. Then the participants packed their bikes together and went to the waterfront beach for wonderful relaxation, volleyball, basketball and soccer. In the evening the closing ceremony took place. 

On Saturday morning everyone began their travel home with tired legs and great memories from the week.

A big thanks to the triathlon federations, the coaches and of course all the participants.
