"Passion defeats talent. Commitment create success"



"Passion defeats talent. Commitment create success"


With passion...

... for endurance fitness, André has over the years trained and competed in some of the hardest sports you can find. Cross country skiing, cycling, mountainbike, multisport and ski mountaineering. During all this time running has been a key factor for the training but now it is the running who has top priority.

The higher technical difficulty the races has, the more it suits his “don’t think about the consequences” type of running and in the 2016 season he got his big international breakthrough in the Skyrunner World Series

Others about André


Martin Persson

Coach at Åre XC-Skiing High School 

“André is a epitome over how long term training eventually pays of, a role model for competitive sports. A perfect example of that training beats talent.”  

Yoie “Rastarunner” Bohlin

Teammate in Sportsgym SC:

“Without André I probably wouldn't understand anything about mountain running. He’s my compass and I see, listen and learn of everything he does. Very helpful and a great safety net.

In his eyes nothing is too hard or too difficult, that attitude catches of to me and makes everything possible”


Anders Gustavsson.

Athlete manager at Peak Performance

"André is an amazing athlete and we are happy to have been a part of his journey towards the top of the Trail Running scene.

I had the pleasure to get to learn André already during his days at the Ski Gymnasium in Järpen, Sweden, and the first time I met him afterwards, 8 years after graduation, on a grass field next to the finish line of Matterhorn Ultraks I knew that he would fit perfect with our brand and the journey we are on with running. 4 years later I am still stoked to see the progression André is doing year after year and his dedication to develop himself. André has been a big part of our product development and is contributing with his knowledge and uncompromising field tests."
