I am a rower qualified for the Tokyo 2021 olympics in the mens quadruple sculls. During the months of sports lockdown I spent all my spare time picking trash along the coast near my home town of Ålesund and combined it with a crowdfunding campaign that grew way bigger than expected, resulting in me being funded to pick 6 tonnes of marine waste. The problem with plastic pollution of our waterways is one that I deeply care about and I would like to use my position as an athlete to fight for it.
