The drive of an Athlete by Shane Roberts

Per Lindström – The final chapter of the Trampoline Pundit Trilogy

I finally completed my overdue interview trilogy. After Leigh Hennessy Robson and Catherine Tracy, only one piece was missing from my Trampoline Pundit Puzzle. You guessed it – Per Lindström.

Let’s meet the man behind the camera!

After a big break from writing on RSCoach Blog (mostly due to lack of time) I am proud to post one of the most overdue posts in my blog’s short history.

Don’t forget to check the final chapter of this triology – Per Lindström .

The past Saturday (18th of October 2014) I went to the HBF Stadium to go through the Chetkovich Cup experience for the first time.

The Allana Slater medal was also up to grabs by the most artistic routine performed.
