Sweden's Jonna Adlerteg: 'I Have More To Give'

A series of flashbacks from the 2018 World Championships in Doha

Sweden’s Jonna Adlerteg refuses to let a pair of past knee injuries break her stride.

“I feel I have more to give,” said Adlerteg, who finished eighth on uneven bars in Doha. “I haven’t had the success I know I can have.”

Adlerteg, the bronze medalist on uneven bars at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games and a 2012 Olympian, suffered serious knee injuries in 2015 and 2016. The unfortunately timed latter injury kept her out of the Rio 2016 Olympics.

A recent series of medal-winning results on uneven bars put a psychological spring in Adlerteg’s step, however. She earned silver at the European Championships in Glasgow in August, and gold and silver at World Challenge Cup events held two consecutive weeks in September.

“I’ve been competing a lot this season,” Adlerteg said. “I feel great. I feel the best yet. I love to get better, and the feeling that you get results for your hard work.”
