Interview with Trine Alsgaard

"Limits? I've never seen any, but I've heard that they exist in some people’s minds" - Thor Heyerdahl
We’ve interviewed Trine Alsgaard (46) from Rælingen, who will attend Expedition Amundsen 2015 before she completes her Bachelor in Sports Science - Trainer Programme with specialization in training, coaching and sport psychology at the Norwegian college of sports (Norges Idrettshøyskole). She’s specializing in cross country skiing. This should be the prerequisites for an exciting element in this year's Expedition!
