That Stina Nilsson gets to make her World Cup debut in Östersund is something that the Norwegian experts are asking themselves.

- It is surprising that she is allowed to go.

She has not had the skiing that I had expected from her this year, while her shooting is a bit more as I have thought.

Based on the results in the IBU Cup, she does not deserve to go, says NRK's ​​expert Ola Lunde.

Expert colleague Liv Grete Skjelbreid is also critical of Nilsson's debut already now.

- Based on the results in the IBU Cup, there are several others who are ahead of her in the queue.

They have probably taken her out so that she can test at the level, but I think it would have been an advantage if they had waited, Skjelbreid tells NRK.

"A good opportunity"

Nilsson himself is happy to get the chance at home.

- In the long run, I dream of being placed in these arenas and have sufficient experience to be able to do well.

This is a good opportunity already now, even though I do not have much experience, to learn what it is that I actually train and dream towards, Nilsson says to SVT Sport.

The women's sprint in the World Cup starts tomorrow Friday at 15.20 and is broadcast on SVT1 / SVT Play.
