On the right track in a hundred years

Friidrottaren Moa Helmets was just six years old when she came to the Tramway; 15 years later, she stood at the top of the podium in Helsinki, with a fresh EM-gold in the 400 metres around the neck. Further, seven years and two children later, we have seen in the Sätrahallen, the Moa's ”home”.

She gave herself permission to truant from training on Monday because the weekend was tough. It was the Swedish CHAMPIONSHIPS in Norrköping and Moa salvaged two of the club's 13 CHAMPIONSHIP medals. For the Moa part, there was a silver in both the 200 and 400 metres and she has taken home more medals than she can count since she came to the club.

"I started with football, but then I discovered that it was more fun to run without the ball," says Moa, but it is not the whole truth.

In the Tramway athletics division are not welcome until you turn ten, so She had to stand on growth.

– It did not so much because I was a tiny girl, " says Moa, who in the day are 172 centimetres long.

in friidrottssektionen with a past as a ”decent” height-, length - and trestegshoppare in the Track, working with athletics on a full time basis. Secondly, volunteering in the club, partly at the Stockholm Marathon office, an office that is operated by Stockholm's two largest friidrottsklubbar, the Tramway and Portland.

the Book is 640 pages thick and contains everything you need to know about The athletics – and then some.

At the office working in the day 20 people and has an annual turnover of over sek 100 million.

– All the profits go back to the sport, emphasises David, who appeared in the book ”The first 100 years” that has been released just in time for the centennial.

the Book is 640 pages thick and contains everything you need to know about The athletics – and then some.

– It weighs 2.2 kg, " says Åke Ruus, the association's treasurer, which pops up during our conversation. Åke is not just the treasurer. He is also the leader of the Track's successful kastargrupp where stars like Daniel Ståhl, and the brothers Arrhenius, Niklas and Leif, are included so he has every reason to stretch.

was enough, more than large parts of dared to hope for when the club was formed 100 years ago and it was discussed what the club would be called.

the Name of the club from the beginning was a pure korpklubb for the employees of Stockholms spårvägar. It was only after 50 years that the Tramway allowed to talk about themselves seriously. From previously having been a club which maybe brought home a medal from the district championships began large parts to be fighting for the medals at the national and international level.

the Track had at the end of the year taken 775 SM-gold, clearly more than any other club in Sweden. Örgryte is second on the list with their 640.

When the Moa Helmets came with in the club, there was almost no child - and youth-oriented activities.

"It has changed significantly in the last ten years," says Moa and tells us that the age is not the only barrier to getting in the Groove. Another is geography. In order to be accepted, one must live in the region. Långpendlare do not enter.

for the Moa was in her school was a fritidspedagog by the name of Janne Abrahamsson. He was a trainer in the Rock athletics division, and on the way it is. Moa started cycling to training sessions in Kärrtorp at the age of ten, around the same time as Sätrahallen was done.

In the hall entrance is a sign with the plates over the existing hallrekord. On one of the plates is 400 metres away and the Moa Helmets, Spåvägens FK 2010 and the time 54,11.

the Moa was recently with hallrekordet, but it doesn't seem to worry her much. She has sights set on four competitions in 2019, three of them go in August: the european CHAMPIONSHIP for teams in Poland, Finnkampen at the Stadium, and SM in the city of Karlstad. She makes no secret of the fact that the world CUP is in Qatar in late september/October which is the big goal, but it comes to qualify there also.

Moa is far from the only landslagsstjärnan in the Track. Daniel Ståhl, silver medallists in the discus at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in 2017, is at least as large as the poster child and the other club mates as the Moa hope for is Irene Ekelund and Lisa Havell at 100 and 3 000 metres.
