Tell us about yourself Solvår, who are you?
I am 41 years old and I originally come from a small place in the middle of Norway. I have lived in Bodø for almost 11 years. I have been an active handball player since I was 8 years old and am now both a volunteer and coach at Bodø Handball Club. I think it is very important that children and young people should have a safe and fun activity outside of home and school.
What are your experiences around such a large event?
I find organizing sports events very rewarding, as I see what this means for those who take part. The Barents Winter Games will be the biggest event I have been involved in planning and implementing. I am very much looking forward to conducting the Barents Winter Games 2023 here in Bodø! And I can’t wait to show you Bodø, the city that I love.
We thank Solvår for the work she does as project manager, and we know that this event is in the best hands.
