Called Norway's new superstar, but now is Emilie (18) facing a tough choice

today going to Norway to play the EM-kvalik in volleyball in Ekeberghallen in Oslo.

The Norwegian damelandslaget is in reality out of the battle for the EM-ticket, but for stortalentet Emilie Olimstad (18) is the match against Ukraine is important.

- We are not going further anyway, but every time you play the game, so it will be the win. It had been insanely fun to compete against a team like Ukraine. When you play the superbowl, so there are also many who are watching, " says Olimstad to the Newspaper.

18-year-old from Åmli has received some offers from foreign clubs after having played juniorlandskamper for Norway. Now, she is excited about the possibilities that can by themselves after the match against Ukraine for the seniorlandslaget.

The most important thing is that the team plays well. For me, it's really about to contribute to the team, but it is not something to add hide the fact that this match gives me the options, " says Olimstad.

the Plan is that the national team should be built around Olimstad, who took the bronze along with Frida Berntsen in beach volleyball in youth OLYMPICS last year.

18-year-old, who thrives equally well on sand, and indoor, are referred to as "Norway's new superstar" of the former sandvolleyballspiller Iver Horrem.

I don't know if I can say I agree there, but I have the urge to reach far in the sport. I have not decided if I will bet on the beach volleyball or volleyball, " says Olimstad.

- There are many who believe that one can play beach volleyball if you play volleyball, that one can switch between the two, but if you really want to go far in one of the sports, then you need to decide for one of them. I think both are very fun, so it is very difficult to choose one of them, " she adds.

The biggest difference between the two sports, is the number of players on the team. A volleyballag consists preferably of 12-15 persons, in which six players are on the pitch at any time.

In beach volleyball, you simply need to relate to yourself and makkeren.

- It is more difficult for Norway to make it to the OLYMPICS in innendørsvolleyball in relation to beach volleyball. Not impossible, but it requires a lot more, tells Olimstad.

Just the OLYMPIC dream, which Olimstad got to taste during the youth OLYMPIC games in Buenos Aires in the last year, is the argument for sandvolleyballsatsing.

It is a big part of the choice. The OLYMPIC roads very up for sandvolleyballen. There is a greater chance to be able to participate and take a medal. It is certainly something I take into consideration when it is between the two options, " says Olimstad.

An even greater experience was to play a Major tournament in Gstaad, Switzerland in July together with Oda Johanne Ulveseth.

- It is the largest I have experienced in beach volleyball. It is to be able to play at the highest level in the world, was really fun. When I was in the period, so I was very sure that I was going to choose beach volleyball. It is really difficult, " says Olimstad.

Now, after having had two great weeks together with the national team in innendørsvolleyball, that is what she thrives with.

Should she bet on proffdrømmen in the sport, it means she must move from a safe environment in Norway.

- It is early to move alone to a foreign country after high school, but if I could have played at a high level, so I think that I had done it, " says Olimstad.

the 18-year-old comes from a family of volleyballspillere. Both mother and father, as well as the one brother, the player. The other brother, Markus Olimstad, took NM-gold in Big Air last year.

- Mom and dad try to help me to set up the positive and negative aspects of both sports. They say that I have all the options open, and that if I choose one thing, so I lose not a chance to go over to the other, " says Olimstad, and adds:

- It is difficult. It is certainly a luxury problem. I can't complain.

last year, let the father of Olimstad released a video on social media where she and her brother "player on the team" against a table, which stood on the other side of the net.

A volleyballkonto picked up and participate the video on the Facebook, and as of this writing, it has over four million recordings.

Suddenly started followers to flow to the Olimstads Instagram account. Fun, says Olimstad, but she doesn't care really about the attention.

I'm trying to have the most focus on playing volleyball and not on what is happening around.
