As DN could tell before the winter championships was Hanna Öberg the Swedish world CUP star (in alpine skiing, cross-country ski & biathlon) who pulled out the most prize money in the world cup, a total of 649.000 sek (with current exchange rate against the euro).
" Surprising. It is nothing like I had expected, " said Öberg when DN told me that she topped the list before the last one Frida Hansdotter.
After two podiums in the european CHAMPIONSHIP collected she further 79.000 dollars.
Öberg been the worst fifth – in the initial mixedstafetten and the pursuit. With fourth place in the sprint and, of course, the highest-grossing, first place in the individual, 23-year-old filled your bank account, with an additional 46.000 euros from the International ski federation (IBU). The amount of the prize corresponds to a little over 485.000 kroner.
Thus have Hanna Öberg far amassed more than a million in pure cash prizes this winter.
To this should be added a guldbonus from the Swedish association, according to Aftonbladet is 140,000 sek. Plus 150 sek for each run intercontinental cup competition. After distansloppet have Öberg 566 points, which thus means 84.900 crowns.
there is an unknown, presumably larger, sum from sponsors.
– It is not money that is the main focus. But it is of course always nice that there is the opportunity to be able to live on what you do, " said Öberg to DN in February.
After Tuesday's world CUP gold medal had she understood herself most of the thoughts on the sporting accomplishment she stood for, but also commented on the economic aspect.
" I know roughly what I have earned. It feels good of course. But I haven't decided what I'll do with the money than.
it is time for Hanna Öberg to venture out into the tävlingsspåret again. That the form is good, we know.
And a chance to the new medal and new cash prizes are available. IBU pay 74.000 dollars for gold per stafettåkare and the Swedish confederation of about 50,000 sek.
" I will certainly do what I can in the continuation of the world CUP, I want to continue to take chances. Will be great to run, " says Oberg faced singelmixedstafetten.
she gets joined by Sebastian Samuelsson, who on Wednesday became 105.000 sek richer for fourth place in the men's distance. In the vicinity of the Öberg, however, he is not pengamässigt in the winter.
Samuelsson believes strongly in the duo despite the fact that many countries chose to sign strong teams.
" if you Look at the distansloppen, we must be among the better nations. We have 39 of the 40 hit together, and I'll try to shoot as good. Think it might be good.
