Competing with the best

Aron Anderson is an adventurer, lecturer and bone cancer survivor.

When I was finally free from the cancer I went all in on sports again. I started training every day and by the age of 13 I was selected to represent team Sweden at the European Junior athletics championships in Nottwil, Switzerland.

I had no idea what to expect. I knew I was pretty fast but I had never before competed at the international stage with the best junior athletes in Europe.

To my big surprise I ended up doing extremely well and won the Gold in every discipline (100m, 200m, 400m and 800m).

WOW!

Aron was back for real!
