Since Swedish athlete Fanny Kuhn completed her first swimrun event in 2014, she hasn’t looked back, winning a stack of races with her swimrun partner, Desiree Anderson – including the biggie: the ÖtillÖ World Championship, which includes 10km of swimming and 65km of trail running! (Yes, really!)
However, the former competitive swimmer isn’t content just to compete – she’s on a mission to encourage more women and girls to give swimrun a go via WILD Swimrun,the business she launched with fellow swimrunner, Maria Rohman, which offers women-only swimrun training camps, along with advice and help via an online community.
I put some questions to Fanny about training, racing and everything swimrun.
