Anders Hallingstad want to step up and become one of Worlds best longdistance skiers.
Everything Looks Good
Hallingstad (28) had decided that he was going to make the podium in The FIS Marathon Cup last winter, but that dream became impossible when he got Mono and his body didn’t function. The 28-year old has however started the upcoming season with new motivation after the illness let go this spring. He has since then trained easy but well since May.
– I’m very motivated, and has gotten more safety and structure in my training after Pal Gunnar Mikkelsplass became our coach, says Hallingstad.
He has a fourth place from KÃ¶nig Ludvig Lauf as his best result and the goal is now the podium in one of the BIG long races.
– That’s the frosting on the cake that has been missing. Everything is now looking good and I will be disappointed if I’m not on the podium this winter.
Hallingstad has focused specifically on longdistance the last four years, and is hoping that the small margins separating him from success will go in his favor this winter.
– I believe that routine and experience is a big advantage in this type of racing, concludes Hallingstad
