If you’ve been around the Kettlebell Sport world in the past couple years, you may have noticed that the Norwegian female lifters are making impressive strides in the sport, especially in double kettlebell events. You may have read this article
about the 3 record-breaking female Master of Sports Norway has produced, and noticed that all of them named the same man as their coach: Mauricio Kjeldner. Personally, I love learning how other coaches coach, and I was curious to ask Mauricio some questions – clearly he is a talented coach who has produced some amazing athletes! Check out the interview below for his responses.
Abigail Johnston has had a whirlwind career in Kettlebell Sport. In the short five years that she’s been lifting kettlebells, she’s trained herself to be on par with Russian athletes who have been lifting since they were tweens, broken more records than I can keep track of, and established herself as a force to reckon with in every single Sport lift (single AND double). Not only is she one of the top lifters in the world, but she is one of the only high-level female coaches whose students have achieved excellent results in competition. I was lucky enough to stay with Abi at her home in Glasgow after the IUKL World Championships in 2015, and get a peek into her life. She impressed me with her dedication to her craft, her modesty, and her kindness and care for her students. Read the following interview to learn more about this lifting extraordinaire!
