Aleksander Hetland – World Champion


A really nice ‘iPhone diary’ captured by Aleksander Hetland’s roommate Petter Fagerlund, the day after Hetland won gold at the Istanbul 2012 World Championships. Unfortunately (naturally) in Norwegian, but what Hetland is discussing while driving is that it of course it is cool to end his swimming carreer as world champion, but that he still will end it, despite of people saying that he can’t stop now. He also says that if he had managed to qualify for the Olympics this summer, he probably would have stopped there, so maybe it was just as well that he didn’t.
