100 years ago, it was the opening of Tingvalla IP with the Swedish Championships in athletics and this weekend IF Göta hosts the arena's last Athletics Championships. - The whole town will breathe athletics and it will be a very wonderful weekend, says Johan Engberg, sports director of IF Göta.



After about two years of planning, expectations are high and IF Götas sports manager Johan Engberg hopes for a weekend where both the competitors and the audience will be thrilled.

The Swedish Championship starts with the women's long jump qualification on Friday afternoon and ends on Sunday with finals in 800 meters.

36 new Swedish champions will be selected this weekend and IF Göta expects to take home a bunch of medals. The target has been revised from eight to nine after a few layoffs.

- If we can take six medals we are super happy, says Johan Engberg.

Always goes for gold

Among the medal jumps, of course, is the high jumper Sofie Skoog and then the sprinter Henrik Larsson with two fresh gold from Finnkampen at 100 and 200 meters.

- I am in good shape and aim for two golds in 100 and 200 meters, says Henrik Larsson.

- Unfortunately, I was sick this weekend, but I feel great now and hope to get a kick this weekend, says Sofie Skoog.

What are your goals?

- You always go for gold, but I also want a good height, a good feeling and a fun evening, says Sofie Skoog.

"I get tagged like that"

This year, the audience gets the unique chance to get down on the inner floor and see the ladies' high finals at a really close range.

- I get tagged and stuffed and usually jump well when people scream and yell, says Sofie Skoog.
