Helping other people reach their goals is my occupation and my passion. I always work with only a limited number of pro and youth athletes as a consultant. I make sure I have time for my athletes.
Before you build up a player’s confidence or belief, you have to read the player. It’s different from player to player. Some like to sit down and talk a lot. Some not. It takes time to change habits. But personally I like making changes. It’s quite fascinating.
When Clas Björling did his mandatory military duty in 1999, his commanding officers discovered his talent for endurance sports. In 2002 he qualified for Ironman Hawaii and became the rookie champion for his age group. In 2004 he had his breakthrough, taking second place in IM in New Zealand and third place in IM in Brazil. In 2006 Björling broke the Swedish record in an Ironman triathlon at 8 minutes 15 seconds.
But he paid a high price for his success and years of uncompromising hard training. He had pushed his body to exhaustion and could barely get out of bed for months. It was a long, difficult road back to the competitive arenas, but with professional assistance and an iron-clad will, Björling made a comeback, winning the Swedish Championships in the Ironman triathlon in 2009.
Today he coaches 20 single-minded athletes, gives lectures and is engaged in multisport. Along with his three teammates, he became the European champion in Adventure Racing in 2016. Not exactly a picnic in the outdoors: trail running, kayaking and mountain biking for three days and six hours non-stop in the Pyrenees mountains. Time to sleep? Not much: a total of 1.5 hours. Distance: 400 kilometres. Vertical drop: 15,000 metres.
