The Österlen network is the corporate network with close to 100 entrepreneurs sponsoring, among other things, young sports talents from south-eastern Skåne. We asked eight questions to Team Nätverket's current eight fellows about how things are going with the sports betting right now. We wondered, among other things, how they motivate themselves to continue training, how the training has changed and whether it is any other sport that they are also engaged in, or instead. Here you will get to know the golf talent William Wistrand.

Name: William Wistrand
Born: 2005
Birthplace: Lund
Lives: Simrishamn

William says: “Getting the chance to join the Network is fantastic. With this scholarship I get the opportunity to train more, go to more competitions and develop to reach my goals. I am extremely grateful that I get to join the Team Network and I will seize this opportunity that you have given me! ”


Eight questions to William about the sport during the corona crisis

1. What is the best thing about your sport?
The best thing about golf is being able to hit the ball and check exactly the right direction and length. It's not easy, though it may look like it. The charm and at the same time the frustration with the sport is that on one hole you can have as good a score as possible and then on the next hole it can be quite the opposite. I can't really put my finger on what it is but once you get stuck it's very fun and very addictive you just want to train and play more and more. Sometimes there may be some prejudice about golf that only old people play but that is not true but if you test then I think you get a slightly different view of the sport. Golf is a sport that everyone can practice and the risk if you try is that you might also get caught, just like me, for this strangely fun sport.

2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do?
My goal is to be the best in the world. If I want to reach that goal, I need to train and work purposefully all the time. Of course, it is fun to be as good as I am now, but I am not satisfied and I have to work hard to be much better. Of course I want to be with my friends in the summer and do fun things but I spend almost every day on the golf course and it's hard to find the time to be able to do it

3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now?
Right now I'm training for the season. I sharpen all the pieces in my game so I will be as good as possible when the season starts. This winter I have focused a lot on my technique and I feel that it has produced results as I hit better and longer strokes. Now I just want to get started with the game and be able to shoot really low scores.

4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately?
Given covid-19, I have been able to train more than I could before spring seasons as there have been many competitions booked. Competition season has been postponed to June 30th. So until July I will be training a lot so I am prepared and in shape for the season to start.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
I also like to play floorball in the winter. It does so my physique is kept up for pretty much all winter. I usually play as a goalkeeper and it helps me as a golfer as mobility is very important in both sports.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
Unfortunately, I did not compete for anything this spring. Covid-19 has meant that the competitions are postponed or canceled until June 30th. It is very boring but there is nothing you can do about it. The only thing that can be done is to follow the restrictions imposed by the Public Health Authority. If everyone follows them, I hope and think we can get started on all sports, not just golf, in the middle of summer.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
My upcoming weeks will be filled with school, golf and homework. School goes first but I have to catch up with my workouts too so I have to plan properly what to do on different days. An ordinary week I practice golf on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Tuesdays and Thursdays I plug.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
Right now in the spring there is unfortunately nothing I look forward to very much, but hopefully on July 1, all competitions will start. It will be as much fun as ever to compete again but right now you have to wait and train instead.

Kornelia Jönsson

The Österlen network is the corporate network with close to 100 entrepreneurs sponsoring, among other things, young sports talents from south-eastern Skåne. We asked eight questions to Team Nätverket's current eight fellows about how things are going with the sports betting right now. We wondered, among other things, how they motivate themselves to continue training, how training has changed and whether it is any other sport that they are also engaged in, or instead. Here you will get to know the table tennis talent Kornelia Jönsson.

Name: Kornelia Jönsson
Born: 2000
Birthplace: Ystad
Lives : Eslöv / Köpingebro
Sports: Table tennis
First club: Köpingebro IF
Current club: Eslöv AI BTK
Scholarship then: 2013

Merits: 13 SM - medals including 2 gold, 2 times gold in Denmark's Top-12

October 2013, right after Kornelia's 13th day, Kornelia was named the month's talent in Ystads Allehanda and became a fellow in the Österlen Network. Kornelia has played series in England for the London Academy, series in Denmark for Bornholm but now for Greve in the elite series and plays in Sweden for Eslöv in the Superettan where the team won 3 years in a row without having the opportunity to enter the highest series because Eslöv already has a team in the Pingis League.

Kornelia says: - In order to fully invest in my table tennis change I already school after grade 8 and then commuted to Källebergsskolan in Eslöv where I could practice table tennis in one of Sweden's leading clubs during school time. Nowadays I live in Eslöv and I spend my third of four years at the gymnasium with NIU Table Tennis. Therefore, the support from the Österlen Network is particularly important to me, since my table tennis bet would not have been possible without it.


Eight questions to Kornelia about the sport during the corona crisis

1. What is the best thing about your sport?
The best thing about my sport is when you reach a goal you have set and trained for a long time to manage.

2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do?
What motivates me to train hard is the desire to be able to play well in the series because it is a team effort and you do not want to disappoint your fellow players!

3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now?
I have just had a rest since the season is over, but the focus will be on strength training for a while now.

4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately?
In the spring, before my rest, the focus was very much on match-like play, as there were many big competitions that you want to hone the form to. Even so, I started training in IFK Lund to get some change in training resistance, exercises and also be trained by my former Tomelilla trainer Christian Björklund.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
Recently, when the hall was closed to ping pong, I have played a lot of golf with my family. Since we are now also plugging away from home, it is incredibly nice to come out in the nice weather and play.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
During the spring, there was a lot of series play all over Sweden when the ping pong league would end. We finished in a 6th place, which means we will stay for next year as well. I have also competed in Borås, Örebro and Senior-SM in Söderhamn. Unfortunately, there were no placements in these competitions this year.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
Upcoming training week will consist of training in Lund, two workouts on Monday and two workouts on Wednesday. As there are no longer any workouts in Eslöv, and the hall is extremely limited to a maximum of two people, there will be only a few workouts there during the week.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
The highlight of the spring would probably be the student for me after four years of high school. Don't know if it's something to look forward to anymore, but we'll see how it goes!

Eight questions to Emma about the sport during the corona crisis

The best thing about my sport is the strong bond you get to the horse, that you really understand each other. Since then I have always been an animal lover so getting to spend time with animals every day is absolutely fantastic!

What motivates me to train right now is that I know that the competitions will start again and then you have to be on top right away!

With Chilli it is just to keep her positive and have fun as I do not know how long she stays in the stable.

Yes, have had to change quite a lot since we must not compete. So much more training on other courses and between that it is training that applies.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
Our whole family is very much interested in sports, so I actually like most sports and watching most of what goes on the TV, not now, but when it is live sports. But I do no other sport than riding and the gym.

He did a competition with Chilli, where we were faultless in 110 cm.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
This week looks like usual, some ground work passes, out to the woods and jump training!

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
I look forward to the races starting again, it may take longer or shorter time than postponed, but at least it will be fun to start competing again when it wants to start.

In addition, it is fun to meet other young people who invest in their sport and listen to upcoming lectures within the Österlen Network. "


Eight questions to Olivia about the sport during the corona crisis

1. What is the best thing about your sport?
Overall, I think swimming is best especially because I think it's super fun! I work out seven workouts a week and I'm almost always tagged for upcoming workouts and time rolls on super fast. The community we have within our club is worthy of gold! Everyone hang out and support each other, we are one big family!

2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do?
Above all, it is to see my development and to want to get faster and faster! Then it is super fun to train the way we do and with my swimming buddies, we are a great bunch! So it becomes easier to swim the "hard" morning workout when you are several and do it together.

3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now?
Right now, the focus is on training as hard as I can for as long as I can. I do not know when or if it will close down the swimming pool and then I have to find another solution. So now the focus is on getting the most out of my time in the water.

4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately?
Not directly. We practice as we have always done and there have been no changes.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
For me, football has been a decent part of this at home. Dad has been a football player himself, so we have watched some of football. At the moment, it is not so much happening / played considering the circumstances.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
I think there have been four races so far. The first competition was in January after the Christmas break and it was marked. The body was not in the same shape as before, but I still managed to get some personal records. Then the training started for real and it was time for the first 50m competition in February. There it went perfectly okay but as always it is a bit difficult to walk from 25 m to 50 m as it looks so far! Overall, the times were completely okay, some over pers but I had thought that. The first and last big competition took place in Malmö. There I swam at the GP and managed to reach the final of 200 and 800 m freestyle. I persevered on my two hundred which was super fun and I am happy with my other efforts which were just a little over pers. The last competition was a "training competition" so there I swam a lot of races! Times were a bit over pers, but the focus was on testing new things and training on competing.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
Now that almost all upcoming competitions are set we have a "mini" competition on Saturdays the last hour of our training session. There we swim between 50-200 m and try to be as close to our pers as possible. Whoever is closest to his pers percentages wins. On Monday we are invited to the “Mini Baptism” in Sjöbo where we will be a maximum of 50 and carry out a maximum of 4 races / person. I myself will swim 50, 100 and 200 m freestyle but also 100 m back swim. It will be fun to get away even if it is not like a regular competition, it is still something. Then we practice as usual with six additional workouts.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
What I look forward to most is to start the outdoor training and hopefully the outdoor season. Since things went very well in Malmö at the GP, I am tagged to start the 50 m season and see what I can achieve. Then I hope Sum-Sim 50 mi Landskrona will get rid of or moved forward as it is my very last Sum-Sim then I am too old.

It feels good that the network is investing in me and I will do my best to not let them down!


Eight questions to Fredrik about the sport during the corona crisis

7. What can a training week look like for you?
Sunday an hour of bike training and an hour of competition training. On Monday there will be fitness in the form of cycling, on Tuesday two hours karate, on Wednesday there will be more cycling, on Thursday one hour karate and on Friday even more for cycling.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
Right now, I am most looking forward to this fall's first competition because I miss the competition.

Elin says: "I am very grateful to have the opportunity to join the Team Network. It means a lot, as it can help me in many ways. For example, I can get lots of new equipment, like workout clothes or new orientation shoes. Through the financial support from the Network, I also get more opportunities to go to training camps and bigger competitions. ”


Eight questions to Elin about the sport during the corona crisis

1. What is the best thing about your sport?
The best thing about the orientation is that it is a sport you have to do several different types of torque at the same time. You have to read the map and choose which route is best to take, while keeping the pace up and running. In this way, orientation can seem quite stressful, because you have to make quick and smart decisions in order to have a chance to get a good placement. However, that is what makes me love to orientate, because it is seldom that you have boring when competing, because you do not have time for it because you always have to be focused.

2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do?
For the most part, it is my ambition to develop and get better that makes me train as much as I do right now, but then I also like to be active and exercise a lot because I feel very good about it.

3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now?
Right now, the focus is on maintaining my workout volume and continuing with my basic training for a good while. I run a lot of running now and I have hopes to improve my fitness until the races get started again.

4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately?
Since I started my distance education, my distance running has increased and the alternative training has decreased, because I do not have the same opportunities for what I had in Olofström. Before I used to, for example. run a barbell during the week, which is difficult to do at home. Otherwise, I try to have a similar training schedule that I've had before.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
I'm not particularly interested in other sports, but I like to check out biathlon and slalom from time to time, especially relays in biathlon. I used to run parkour and gymnastics in my spare time before, but I completely stopped it when I started high school in order to focus on the orientation.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
I only had three races at the end of February, all during the same weekend. Those competitions went well I would say. I took it easy on Friday night orientation to focus on the competitions over the weekend. There were no fantastic placements that weekend, but that was to be expected. There was no terrain that suited me very well, plus I was still in my basic training and not in top form, because I had intended to top form for the JVM tests which would have passed in May, but they are now canceled. Otherwise, there were no more competitions, but there were two training camps, one in Jämjö and one on Bornholm.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
On Monday, there is a quiet short distance session for about 1 hour and a strength session after that. On Tuesday there will be an interval session in the morning and then orientation training in the evening. On Wednesday it is strength in the morning and then a distance pass in the afternoon. On Thursday, it is orientation training. On Fridays I usually take a rest day. On Saturday it will be a distance and on Sunday I will run one more workout. In total, there should be between 8-10 hours of active training and 60-75 km of running during one week.
Monday: Short distance workout 1 hour + Strength workout 30-45 minutes in the afternoon.
Tuesday: Interval or run in the morning for 1 hour. Orientation training in the evening.
Wednesday: Strength training in the morning. Distance workout in the afternoon 80-120 minutes.
Thursday: Orientation training in the evening.
Friday: Rest.
Saturday: Distance 80-120 minutes.
Sunday: Orientation training.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
Right now I am most looking forward to starting to compete again, because I really love traveling to new places and competing. In the near term, I yearn for the most until the summer begins and I can get a little more freedom about when to train, because right now I have to put my workouts in so that they do not collide with my distance learning.

Österlen FF part 3 - Ronny, a supporting part of the team building

2th of May 2020
Ronny Andersson one of Österlen FF's team leaders.

Everyone at some point in life should work ideally with something you are passionate about. Doing a job completely without financial compensation is stimulating - you give and receive back. A rewarding activity simply. The entire Swedish sports movement is carried forward by non-working people at different levels. They are true heroes. In the third part of Österlen's report series about Österlen FF we meet one of these heroes, the Österlen profile Ronny Andersson who really knows what the volunteer work means and what it gives back.

The association life in Österlen has been a red thread through Ronny's life and he has come to know a lot of people over the years. Sometimes people come to town and talk to him.

- My wife used to wonder who that was. It is difficult to place them and often I have no idea, says 71-year-old Ronny Andersson.

For about five years Ronny sat in the ticket booth at Österlen FF's home games. In 2017, his wife passed away and as of the 2018 season he stepped in as one of the Österlen's team leaders. We meet Ronny at Skillinge ip for a while before one of spring training sessions.

How come you took the step from the ticket door to a team leader role?
- I knew quite a few of the players before and saw many of the team's workouts. Sometimes I joined the away games as well. It became more and more and then they asked if I wanted to help. We are three coaches serving the guys. It is Carsten Nilsson who takes care of clothes and stuff and Erling Silverberg who takes care of any damage. And so do I.

What is your information?
- I serve the guys with water, get balls, cones and vests so that it flows as it should during workouts and matches. The balls should be pumped with 0,85, which is a kind of weight measure. I also usually help so that we get match ads in Ystads Allehanda but it is a professional injury, Ronny continues as under 22! worked in the local magazine, including as an ad salesman.

Three training sessions per week Ronny is on site at Skillinge ip well in advance of training. In addition, he works at matches, both at home and away. Much of Ronny's leisure time is dedicated to the football club in his heart.

Ronny Andersson - one of the team members who, in the proper sense of the word, carries the team.

How come you have such a great commitment to Österlen FF?
- It has become like a family with all the guys. New players blend well into the team. Then it is company for me too. Everyone greets everyone and I feel like part of the team.

The associate Ronny is also a secretary in Brantevik's IF's main association, the one that annually organizes Jazz under the stars at the sports ground in Brantevik.

- And before Brantevik I was in Gislövsdals IK where, among other things, I started the mature dance at Gislövs Stjärna. But my first association engagement was in Vitaby IS which in 1973 merged with Ravlunda IF and became RAVI.

What was your role in Vitaby?
- I trained boy teams and I played in Vitaby as well.

Have you played in more clubs?
- No, by the way I played a match for IFK Simrishamn's oldboys. I pulled off a muscle after half an hour's play but I kept zero, says Ronny with a smile.

So you were a goalkeeper during your football career?
- I was really center but sometimes I was in goal too.

In addition to his involvement in Österlen FF and Branteviks IF, Ronny is also involved in Simrishamns Köpmannaförening where he handles the gift cards that the association sells.

On top of all the voluntary commitment are also the daughter and grandchildren. Although they may sometimes stand aside for Ronny's football interest, they are number one.
- The grandchildren are the cream, they are so lovely!

If we move on to this year's sporting season. What do you think the opportunities of the East are?
- One or two. Syrians and Österlen will fight for first place. Husqvarna can also be dangerous.

What is the difference between this edition of Österlen FF compared to last year?
- Much better. We have several top players. But it's the same nice atmosphere in the team as always.

Ronny often returns during the interview to the team's mood. What do you think is the key to the mood?
- The guys are about the same, and they thrive. Some might be better off here in Österlen where it is a bit calmer. Compared to cities. The coaches are good at getting the team together. They give rice and rose.

Finally, I ask Ronny if he has any fun event he has been with all the years in the Österlen association life.
- It was a winter. I worked in the Vitaby general store and would run out of groceries. There was so much snow that the car could not be driven anywhere, so we packed the food in a sled and delivered the food with skis and sled instead, ”Ronny Andersson concludes.

Hammenhögs IF part 2 - great longing for the series start

18th April 2020
Hammenhögs IF.
Picture Anders Palmér.

This spring did not come true as we had imagined. But - the show must go on. Time for part 2 of the reporting series about Hammenhögs IF where we took the temp on the team's one coach Anders Palmér who incidentally turns 60 years next week.

Congratulations in advance, how's the situation?
- Good, but you climb a bit on the walls. I work on planning for the season and then there will be some holiday days too, says Anders Palmér.

Anders Palmér, trainer for Hammenhögs IF.

The latest in the series start is that Hammenhög's Division 1 series starts on June 14 and then as a single series with eleven matches. The premiere takes place against the newcomers Laholm FK.
How do you think this arrangement will affect Hammenhögs IF?
- It feels good, it is important to be involved from the beginning and find a top shape immediately. The classic of winning at home and taking points away can be road winning. We were lucky to get six home games and five away.

Eight Skåne teams, two from Blekinge and one from each of Halland and Småland make up Division 1 south Götaland. Here you have the team: Asarum IF FK (Blekinge), Nättraby GoIF (Blekinge), Laholms FK (Halland), Borgeby FK (Skåne), Dösjöbro IF (Skåne), Eskilsminne IF (Skåne), Hittarps IK (Skåne), Hammenhögs IF (Skåne), IF Bromölla IF (Skåne), Trelleborgs FF (Skåne), Åhus IF (Skåne) and Färjestadens GoIF (Småland).

Angelika Fridh, Sabina Losell Hansen and Helena Sassersson (formerly Palm) are three players to reckon with after they become mothers.
For this trio, maybe the deferred start of the series came timely so that they had more time to get in shape?
- There are players with the right attitude and great experience so I don't think it plays such a big role. They are not pigeons.

You have paused the training now, do you meet the players anyway?
- No, we will not meet during the break. The players have their own responsibility to keep the training going and it seems to work for sometimes when I am out and about driving the car I see someone running.

A total of nine players are new compared to last year's squad. Enna Kurbegovic, sisters Alicia and Irma Thoresen, Disa Hellwig, Hanna Larsson, Frida Kristensson, Matilda Larsson, Emma Andersta and Erika Gunnarsson.
- We have a good team, a younger team compared to last season. The squad consists of 24 players and we feel much more stable and have a better width than last year. The competition is razor-sharp.

With some distance to the three training games you had to play before the involuntary break, what do you have to say about the matches?
- I am pleased with the achievement and morale even though we lost all three. All the players do a great job and take steps forward in development. Several of the new players impress. Two 13-14 year old talents from Pandora practice with us, it's fun. A breakdown, however, for Alexandra Frej who was injured.

How are the thoughts about the summer camp that you organized last year and which became a success last year, will it come to an end?
- We are planning to implement it again this year, but we will move it to August.

Finally, what are you most looking forward to right now?
- To start the series game, I long for the premiere of Laholm, concludes Anders Palmér.
