Sweden Announces National Team Selections

There will be 27 women and 20 men who will represent the alpine national team 2019/2020.

Alpine boss Tommy Eliasson Winter said "After a World Cup at home, it feels inspiring to look ahead to the coming season with a new national team squad. Some familiar names are already in the absolute top layer, but also some new faces that we look forward to taking further steps in their development. 2019/2020 is a season without championship, which means that we can continue to shape a law and a system that should be competitive in all of the disciplines in 2022. The selected squad gives us strong conditions for making results while building for the future,

Women's teammanager Lars Melin sas that this is "An exciting squad in which I look forward to seeing how the girls can take the additional step of the season 2019/2020. In the World Cup last year there were many who showed their feet and I hope that we can continue to develop in that direction so that additional skaters can establish themselves in the absolute top. In the European Cup and not least JVM, we had great success last year and it is a strong generation of skaters in the talent tube that we look forward with excitement to how they will develop,

Mr Fredrik Kingstad said "In the coming season, we want to focus the competition in the men's team, a targeted investment to really make an effort to clog the generation shift we are in. Feel extremely inspiring that André & Matts continues their efforts, both because they are riders in the absolute top layer, but also as two natural leaders and inspirations on the technology side. On the junior side, it is a wonderful print in the system where we saw great progress both at the individual level and as a group as a whole during last year and it will be exciting to follow that development. We are really looking forward to the coming season,"
