Gothenburg’s Astrid Vikander is one of the most skilled martial artists around. This weekend the young fighter won double gold medals at the Nordic Open.

“It’s great to be back with wins after being injured,” Vikgren tells Frontkick. “I’ve done the Nordic Championships many times now and it’s always fun as it’s the biggest competition in the Nordic countries.”

The young grappler moved up a weight class ahead of the Nordic Open but that did not stop her at all.

“I competed in a weight class above so a friend could compete in our usual weight, but it was no problem. My dad coached both me and my sister and then everything was easy! My club Conde BJJ did well. Even if we were fewer than usual we showed that Gothenburg is a city to be reckoned with.”
