Interview with said runner
Interviewer - A week after the race of people are still talking about Mikael ekvall. The question is whether it is an achievment or crazy just to run covered in poo.
Mikael - there is not so much to do about it, you just do it?
Interviewer - Have you ever thought about quitting the race?
Mikael - no .. well thought about it, but it's not on the map to actually do it.
Interviewer - but honestly, how much fun is it to run in the street covered in poo?
Mikael - it's not fun, but once you've won a race you know the feeling and want to get that feeling again, it's a simple as that.
Interviewer - 18 years old Mikael running for Strömstads idrottsklubb and this is his second marathon. It was only after a few miles, he felt the problem foods. Did you know you consider stopping to clean off?
Mikael - No, I lose time.
Interviewer - Where did you get this winner instinct?
Mikael - I do not know. Maybe from my father and my coach. These are really tough and I want to be like them.
Interviewer - Mikael finished in 1:09:41 and finished with a 21 admireable area. This weekend she tried out for the world cup in her age group and qualified. And he will not leave the race either.
Mikael - if you quit once it is easy to do it again and again and again. It becomes a habit. Leave for lesser reasons. I think.
Interviewer - You want to do the same thing again?
Mikael - yes, if I had to.
