– We have finished, says Frida Karlsson to Expressen.
Frida Karlsson and William Poromaa both come from a skiing World Cup lined with medal success.

William Poromaa, for his part, went home with a bronze – but as it meant a lot.
Frida Karlsson and William Poromaa break up
It was the first WC medal on the men’s side in six(!) years, and also the 22-year-old’s first individual WC medal in his career. William Poromaa is Sweden’s given name of the future and a big star on the men’s side. He and Frida Karlsson have also been in a love relationship for a long time, and have thus formed one of sports Sweden’s big star couples.
But right after the ski WC, now comes a real shock message from the two ski stars. For the past year, the couple have lived in different places in Sweden to devote themselves wholeheartedly to skiing. Now Frida Karlsson confirms that the couple chooses to go their separate ways.
– We have finished. But we are still very good friends, says Frida Karlsson to Expressen.

Has been a separate residence
Frida Karlsson and William Poromaa both previously in Sollefteå together, but last year Frida Karlsson chose to move to Östersund, and William Poromaa to Sundsvall. Frida and William felt that these were the places that best suited their investment, and since then the couple have lived separately. But now the relationship is over.
Frida Karlsson went to the WC with enormous expectations for herself, but has admitted afterwards that the cold she caught right after the Tour de Ski affected her more than she has given the impression in the media. William Poromaa has had a giant breakthrough this season, and has been praised throughout the skiing world for his huge WC, where he has many times been the only one even close to challenging the Norwegian, superb men’s national team.
