Jenny Rissveds

A lot could be said about the Swedish Olympic Gold Medalist Jenny Rissveds, but what stood out during our first meeting was the fascinating human being we met. A 22 year old lady from Falun, Sweden. Nothing more, nothing less. Perfect in so many ways but most importantly perfect because she is who she is. And in being that, we can’t think of a better role model for her peers, the youth, people in general and of course the people she works with.

Her day to day job is her plattform, her life as we know it now, the Scott-Odlo MTB Racing Team. Her mentor, the team leader, Thomas ”Frischi” Frischknecht, together with her coach Fredrik Ericsson works methodically and tirelessly to take the boundaries to new levels each and every day. Important to point out is that there is a lot of laughter and love whilst doing this. Possibly one of the strongest components in Jenny’s success.

One often say that you have to find out yourself in order to truly grasp the greatness of something or, as in this case, someone. We sincerely hope that most of you will get a chance to meet Jenny one day. However, until then, please have a look at the following:
