In March, startling winter sports news was received when Swedish star Stina Nilsson announced that she was switching from cross-country to biathlon.
In addition to Nilsson spending long times on the shooting range in the spring, his last major months have been another significant investment.
The Swede moved into the home of his dreams.
- I just moved into the house, and I am completely in love with it. It gives me a lot of joy and I look forward to spending a lot of time there. A huge amount of time is spent on biathlon, but as I said, I find it very valuable that my house is ready, Nilsson glowed at Expressen.
The Swedish star also shared a series of pictures of their new, magnificent apartment on their Instagram account.
- Have you seen a happier person? It’s not easy to stay cool today because my new house is finally fully furnished and READY, Nilsson said in his Instagram release.
To Expressen, Nilsson said that the completion of a new home in a time of emergency colored by the coronavirus now seems particularly meaningful.
- It feels like I've found paradise. This is the best I know, Nilsson rejoiced.
On the cross-country side, Nilsson (right) grabbed an Olympic bronze, among other things - in Pyeongchang in 2018 in the women's 30 km, when Krista Pärmäkoski (left) placed second and Marit Björgen from Norway won the race.

For his new career, now on the biathlon side, Nilsson continues to prepare under the watchful eye of Swiss coach Jean-Marc Chabloz. As a biathlete, Nilsson is aiming for the 2022 Beijing Olympics.
- He shoots 1,200 shots a week - no one in this world does the same. Stina is so hugely eager that I almost have to hold her back. I can guarantee that he is a unique case, coach Chabloz glowed at SVT in the spring.
