Therese Johaug wants everybody to know that she is training very, very hard for her comeback next season.
Johaug’s trainer, Pål Gunnar Mikkelsplass, told the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet this week that Therese has become physically much stronger, both in upper body core and leg muscles.
At 1.62 m and 46 kg, the Norwegian was indomitable throughout her skiing career on hilly terrain, while losing to competition on flat stretches of the trail.
No more, it seems:
Before beating the competition in Pyeongchang, however, the 28 year old will have to convince the Court of Arbitration for Sport to allow her to participate in the Olympics. Johaug sat out the last season, being banned for using clostebol, a steroid, unintentionally.
