When the normal space in the Athlete of the Month table is not enough for the career highlights of a 22-year-old athlete, then it is clear that we are talking about someone extraordinary.

And that is of course the case when it comes to Tove Alexandersson – she is by all means an extraordinary athlete: Recent Sprint World Champion in Ski Orienteering in February, winner of all three races of the Orienteering World Cup Round 1 in January, and the leader of World Rankings in both Orienteering and Ski Orienteering as the first person ever.

“I’m quite used to switching between running and skiing and summer and winter. After Orienteering World Cup Round 1, I really looked forward to the ski orienteering season and that was the only thing I needed to come in the right mode”, Tove says.
