Congratulations Fia, you have gotten nominated as "the role model of the year" by the Swedish "Budo and martial arts federation". How does it feel?
- It feels fantastic. I feel honoured. It´s the biggest thing you can do, to inspire others.
In what way do you think that you are a good role model?
- It´s hard to say. Maybe it is inspiring that I haven´t always been in the top of armwrestling. That it is during the last years that I have started to win more and more. That since I had children my training and competition has improved. Me myself get inspired by peoples development and their way to get there, and also when you balance working out and competing, with your daily work and having a family to take care of.
Do you have a role model in your life?
- I have many role models, it´s different if it is in normal life or in your sport. In life I get inspired by single parents or parents to children with different difficulties, that despite all odds proves that everything is possible. I also find it inspiring in sports, when someone makes it to the top, even if they don't have the right conditions to do so. That they overcome these obstacles and makes it, despite everything.
