What if this season was Alexander Kristoff’s last?

In the middle of the road; Alexander Kristoff is no stranger to the battalion. At 34 years old; the Norwegian runner still has something to his credit and yet he thinks that “2022 may be his last.”

-This may be my last season. It all depends on how this year is going to go. Above all; I plan to continue for several years; but I have to evolve at a good level. Last year I was not good enough. Now it’s more about having fun. The most important thing is to start winning a small race again and score points. I feel like I’ve been training well lately. IM in time. I was not ill this winter; which would have bothered me. I think it works fine. I am very positive about the way things are organized in the team.
