The athlete of the month on FISA’s Worldrowing.com is the Swedish rower Lassi Karonen. I though I knew most things about my countryman, but I was surprised to read that his hobby is to play the violin. Mycket intressant och sofistikerat, bäste Lassi!
If you wonder, yes, the interviewer asked Lassi if making the top of Megan Kalmoe’s hot list of male rowers last year brought him any fame. You will find his answer here (and the rest of the article, of course).
