With a safe trip and a tough ride, Cassandra Johansson has joined the Swedish Junior League. A subset on the way to her big dream, the big championships.

How did you start traveling?

“My parents thought it was good to learn how to skate. So that was really just what I would do. But then I was moved to the groups.

How would you describe yourself as a figure skater?

– I have a tougher style, not so elegant and graceful. I’m not always so patient, but I like a high pace.

Which part of the art workout do you like best?

– I like the best jump. To jump and learn new difficult things.

What do you need to be better at?

“I think I need to be more careful in the ride. Especially in the “slow bit” where I want to get to the lines and the good bows.

What are your role models?

– Japanese Mao Asada and American Gracie Gold.

What is your goal?

“My big goal, of course, is to go big championships, and the OS. And to develop myself as far as I can.

What do you have for interim goals along the way?

“A training goal is to put more triple triple combinations and to handle them on a competition. I would also like to take a good location on The Nordics and join the European Championships.

How would you describe yourself as a person?

– Right kind and thoughtful. But everyone has their bad sides as well. I can be quite lazy at home and sometimes you can not take all the responsibilities you should take.

How are you in the locker room after training?

“I help if someone needs help and talk a lot with the others. And I’m having fun with them.

What did you do in your spare time if you did not go skiing?

“Then I would have done any other sport.

What do you think you will do after you quit?

“I think I will continue to study, or to help as a coach. I will probably get a good education and then I’ll see what I want to work with.
