In an interview in SVT's Politikbyrån, club friend Thomas Molin and his father Anders Molin, who was also Ulf Kristersson's coach, now talk about the M-leader's fighting joy, determination - and about how Thomas secretly performed worse for Ulf Kristersson to get a higher point.

- We were in Katrineholm and competed and they knew he wanted to move on, so I deliberately missed in one or two tools so that he would get a higher score than me so that he went on, says Thomas Molin.
