Victor Johansson from Nässjö who competes for Jönköpings Simsällskap has been selected for the Olympics via future criteria and will swim 800 and 1500 meters.

Cared for with respirator

In 2020, Victor Johansson suffered from covid-19.

After that he trained so hard that he got a testosterone deficiency and in December he was forced to seek care for a throat infection.

It became so urgent that he was admitted to the intensive care unit and ended up on a respirator. 

- I was on a respirator, I am 22 years old, I should not be on a respirator.

I was terminally ill.

If we had not had the healthcare we have, I would not have been alive, Victor Johansson told SVT Sport in April.
