Therese Johaug | FIS Cross Country

Therese Johaug | FIS Cross Country


I think I was a child with a lot of energy. I grew up in a very small town, in Norway, called Dalsbygda, about 500 people live there. So Cross-Country was my sport, I really liked it. I have a brother who was also very interested in it, so we pushed each other to be better. He was the one who actually started it, and then I thought I could join! So that was a cool thing! In 2006 I came to the Junior team in Norway. That was really big for me to come there, to train in the Olympic center in Oslo, when I saw Marit Bjoergen running outisde I was like: “rhaaaaaa”! Oh my god! Then that season went very well for me. Before that I thought it was just good to train, it was just one of my hobby, then it got more and more serious. Since I was a liittle girl, I was always interested in clothing, also clothing for sport. I remember when I was 12 or 13, I made my own jeans and jackets, like I made them by myself. I’m so luck that I have my own brand now. Especially in the last two years, I spent a lot of time with all the people who work there, for the design and to sell it out to the shops. That’s been really good! Oh I would say: do the sport that you want to do, be proud of your body, stay healthy, don’t push yourself so hard, be confident, and the most important, be proud of yourself, who you really are.

  1. Other than Norwegians, XC fans tolerate Johaug. She’s back in the sport and there’s nothing we can do about it. But that does not mean we have to like it. Every victory she scores as far as I am concerned is an asterisk against clean competition.

  2. Пусть без терапевтических исключений выступает, тогда и посмотрим на результаты. Нажреться допинга и чемпионы!

  3. Here's a valuable lesson for "young talents out there": you can be a drug cheat, serve your meaningless suspension, and accrue the long-term benefits of being on a drug regime such that you utterly dominate the sport upon your return, and be CELEBRATED!
