Sjoestroem hoping to make Swedish history
At just 22, Sarah Sjoestroem already has an impressive record. After winning 7 world titles and 15 European crowns (long and short course), the Swede will be hoping to finally get her hands on an Olympic medal in Rio.
Sjoestroem was just 14 when she took gold in the 100m butterfly at the 2008 European championships. She went on to become the world record holder in the discipline (55.64), which represents perhaps her best chance of medal success in Brazil.
Sjoestroem is determined to improve on London 2012, where she finished 4th in the 100m butterfly and reached the semi-finals of the 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle. She also dreams of becoming the first Swedish woman to win an Olympic swimming gold medal.
