Interview with Filip Svensson (FS), Sweden and Skoghalls BGK

This interview was done the 8th of May 2012. Interviewer is Hans Bergström (HB).

HB: Many things to congratulate on since we had the last interview. First of all I wish you congratulations to becoming the “Player of the Year 2011” on Minigolfnews. Second congratulate on becoming Player of the Year in Sweden and lastly also congratulation on becoming the Nordic Champions. Which of these three achievements do you rank the highest?

FS: I must say that I put ”Player of the Year in Sweden” highest of those tree. This award I have not been given before and it feels like a great honor to get it.

HB: Let’s start with the “Player of the Year 2011” on Minigolfnews award. You were elected as winner in the public vote and second in the expert vote after Walter Erlbruch. But together you had the highest points. So who was the best in 2011 you or Walter?

FS: We are both World Champions so I guess we are equally good :)

HB: Please tell us about you victory in the Nordic Championship. It was a tight race against your fellow club mate from Norway. What gave you the victory in the end?

FS: I know that I am usually strong in these tight situations, but this time it felt more that I was the person getting the longest straw.

HB: What were your thoughts on lane 18 knowing that an ace meant gold? Nervous?

FS: I don’t want to sound too cocky but not the least nervous. Actually I enjoy these situations :)

HB: What is your impression about competing in Latvia?

FS: It was great! Not only because of my good results in the tournament but also because of the food, the course and the surroundings. It was a great event and a god arrangement!

HB: Soon the Swedish Elitserien will start. Will you be able to take up the fight with Uppsala this time?

FS: I absolutely think so. Can we only get the best team with us to all the weekends then we will be able to give them a good fight for the victory.

HB: Will you aim on the European Championships in Porto in August?

FS: You can bet on it!

HB: What happens next for you in Minigolf?

FS: Next up is the Swedish Elitserie and then I have some planned events that will be really nice.

HB: Again a big congratulation to the Nordics and the awards.

FS: Thank you back. I guess I need to say something smart also to all the readers. Stay on the course!
