Järbyn proves to be tough

Swedish athlete, Patrick Järbyn may not be this year’s youngest competitor, but the 34 year old from Bora has certainly done some amazing things since last summer.

After being denied a place on the national Swedish team last summer, he decided he wasn’t going to give up his career so he went solo. This was a courageous yet risky decision, seeing as he would have to do everything on his own, which included being an athlete, coach, physical therapist, etc. “ I’m pleased with my two eighth places in the races in America”, says Järbyn in the arrival area after jumping 60 meters over the second wall during the preliminary runs on Saslong.
