Dahlqvist believes that her progress from a distance will also make her a better sprinter. Nor is she afraid of high expectations from the audience.

- I think you should have it, but I usually think that if others believe in me, it's easier to believe in yourself too. And they do well for a reason. Then I think the press from myself is bigger, says 25-year-old Dahlqvist.

One who believes strongly in Swedish is SVT Sports expert Anders Blomquist.

- I have very high expectations for Maja Dahlqvist. Her last season was absolutely amazing and rumor has it that she raised another snap both on sprint and distance, he says.
