Bianca hopeful

The last time has been incredibly tough for 24-year-old Bianca, who tried to hold up training as much as possible while mourning her father. Even though it has been very difficult and in the fall of 2022, she prioritized being with dad for the last time of his life.
– I have still been able to train well quite a few sessions, but it has become that you have missed some due to many trips and I have wanted to be with dad as much as possible. There are many training sessions that have disappeared and quite a few sessions have been very bad because you are not there at 100 percent. There has been a lot of frustration, says Salming in an interview with TT.

This week she made her season debut in heptathlon with competitions in Sollentuna and it felt good right from the start. The Swede’s big goal for the upcoming season is the indoor EC in Istanbul, which starts in March, and she looks hopefully towards her immediate future.
– I have felt that I have been in good shape, but it has felt uncertain. I have doubted myself, missed a lot of practice and a lot has happened. Considering the result I did in the first competition, I really feel that I can take a big step if I can stay injury-free. I really have a good feeling in my body, says Bianca in the interview.
