Swedish ski jumping talent Frida Westman has entered an exciting partnership with the Norwegian national team, reports the Swedish Ski Federation. Starting from the 2023/2024 season, Frida will live, train and travel with the Norwegians. The partnership is already in full swing and Frida has been training under the supervision of Coach Christian Meyer since this spring. Living in Trondheim, she is part of the training group that also contains Eirin Kvandal.

"I'm very excited about the future with the Norwegian national team"

"I'm very excited about the future with the Norwegian national team, and I know that I will continue to develop even further", says an excited Frida, who has high hopes for the collaboration.


Trønderhopp

Frida has been living and training in Norway for several years already. She was part of Trønderhopp, but according to the Swedes, that stops for her, so she can train with Hopplandslaget. The Swedish collaboration with the club from Trondheim will continue and they currently house four Swedish jumpers: Tobias Fröier, Rickard Nyström, Larisa Avram and Jenny Forsberg.

Collaboration with Team USA

Hopplandslaget has been proven to be a desired partner. Besides Frida, an extensive collaboration with Team USA was announced last season. For the better part of the year, jumpers from the United States are living and training in Norway, alongside the Norwegian national team. Earlier this year it was also announced that Estonian ski jumper Artti Aigro teamed up with the Norwegians.
