We are happy to introduce you to Urska and Malin who will race in Marbella for Power Woman Athletic Club.


"My name is Urska and I’m a mother to a 2 year old, with a degree in Sports Science and a huge passion for endurance sports.

I live in Bled, tiny gorgeous town surrounded by Alps, in the northern part of Slovenia. I grew up skiing from the young age and pursue my dreams to become a professional skier till UNI. Almost 10 years later, after giving birth to my son, I decided to give swimming a shot and knowing that I’m quite good at running, and solid in cycling, I applied for my first 70.3. IM race. Sadly I got the famous virus just a week before the race and had to wave goodbye to my main sports goal of the season. But I got hooked by trainings, even though I haven’t tasted the proper race feeling yet. So after I got the mail from team Power Woman Official to race on IM Marbella, I instantly felt happiness and some nerves at the same time. I couldn’t say no to the opportunity like this, so fingers crossed that I get to the starting line healthy and that I’ll perform the way I wish too. I feel beyond blessed. It’s my dreams coming to life and I feel like I’m just getting started!"

Tell us about yourself Malin?
-I am a Skåning at heart, but live in Stockholm since many years. Mother of two wild and active boys of 7 and 9 years old. Work within IT and love the balance between people, business and technology. 

Malin, whats your dream race! 

-My why has always been the same, even though the challenges has over the years been pushed forward and in different directions. My why is strongly connected to staying mentally strong. Since a sick period for more than ten years ago, I have always prioritised my health and physical condition. The stronger body, the better state of mental health. Dream challenge for this year is Ironman Kalmar and who knows what will come if I succeed to finish that race!

What is a power woman for you Malin? 
-A Power Woman is you who set your goals no matter the preconditions. You who know the difference between noticing others goals, actions, standards in order to learn something rather than to compare. It is You who is kind to the core but has the power to set boundaries. It is You and Me who keep struggling with our daily battles but with our focus close at heart and goals in the stars.
