The Swedes have chosen members to compete in the national team at the Scandinavian tournament in Finland. The trainer of the Swedish team this year is Olil Amble and as can be expected she will be busy putting the finishing touches on the team before the Scandinavian tournament starts.
When asked, Olil said that the job of the national team trainer is to assist and help those who need such assistance, depending on the request of each individual member. The width of a team such as this one is great, from the teenagers who are starting their international competition career and to the world champions. Some want a lot of assistance but others do not. Some have their own trainers with them who then again work with the national team trainer, both as far as preparation and also when they arrive to the tournament itself, so this is has multiple sides to it.
Olil will travel to Sweden within the next couple of days where the team will meet and exercise for four days and then she will accompany them to Finland where the tournament itself will be held.
When Olil is asked whether it is not a little weird to be back into the “camp of the enemies” she does not quite agree “I do not look at it that way, although certainly there is competition between countries. But the main object here is in fact the same for everyone, that is to enhance the way of the Icelandic horse” Olil finally says.
