DANIEL BIRGMARK MOT LONDON 2012

Mars 03, 2012 @ 22:40:56   Foto Search Magazine


När du läser detta är VM i Perth i full gång eller har kanske till och med redan avgjorts. Då har de svenska landslagsseglarna tagit ytterligare ett stort steg närmare London-OS nästa sommar. Det är i Perth som majoriteten av nationsplatserna delas ut och de första seglarna kan få sin OS-biljett.

 

Som i de senaste upplagorna av Search och tiden fram till OS kommer vi här uppmärksamma våra svenska seglare och deras väg till seglingstokiga England. Det svenska landslaget är en bra blandning av unga lovande och något äldre och mer rutinerade seglare. Personen vi ska titta på närmare denna gång har varit både ung och lovande men räknas nu, med två OS i bagaget, definitivt till en av Sveriges mest erfarna seglare.

 

Daniel Birgmark är född 1973 i Grundsund norr om Göteborg och seglar sedan många år tillbaka för GKSS. Det stora målet är OS nästa sommar i Finnjolleklassen. För att förbereda sig optimalt inför VM-seglingarna åkte Daniel redan i början på november till Australien. Det var där vi fick tag på honom för en liten pratstund.

 

Daniel, kan du i korta drag berätta om din seglingskarriär fram tills idag?

 

– ”Jag började, som nästan alla i Sverige, att segla optimist. Sen gick jag den klassiska vägen från E-jolle till Laser innan jag bytte till Finnjollen. Under ungdomsåren hade jag möjligheten att segla på skoltid. Då fanns det något som hette hemortsalternativ. Det var en möjlighet att kunna bo kvar hemma men ändå ägna sig åt sin idrott.”

 

Hur kom det sig att det blev Finnjolle? Det var ju ett något hastigt beslut när det begav sig. – ”Det stämmer, men så var det faktiskt även när jag bytte till Lasern. Jag hade inte tänkt segla Laser så tidigt som jag gjorde. Efter två och ett halvt år i E-jollen fick jag testa Laser på en tävling där det var en ny Laser som första pris. Jag lyckades faktiskt vinna och hade helt plötsligt en egen båt. Sen blev det Laser i en massa år fram tills 2004. När jag inte lyckades att kvala till OS i Aten i Laser fanns det en chans att byta till Finnjollen eftersom deras kval låg senare. Då bestämde jag mig för att satsa på det och lyckades komma med till Aten i Finnjolle istället.”

 

Då hade du inte många veckor på dig att gå upp i vikt (det skiljer cirka tio kilo mellan en Laser och en Finnjolleseglare). – ”Nej det hade jag verkligen inte, men jag seglade förvånansvärt bra när det blåste mycket och hade några riktigt hyggliga placeringar under OS-regattan och slutade på en sammanlagt 14 plats. Efter det ställde jag in siktet på att lära mig båten ordentligt och det kändes som en spännande utmaning att få se hur man skulle klara av seglingen i den klassen med mera förberedning och träning. Då körde jag på järnet och fick äta ordentlig för att gå upp i vikt lite till. Jag har inte haft så jättelätt att hålla vikten, så det har varit en stor omställning i både kost och träning.”

 

Daniel seglade sedan väldigt framgångsrikt i Finnjolleklassen och tog sig till sitt andra OS som seglades i Qingdao 2008. Väl där blev hans fjärde plats en av Sveriges bästa insatser under dessa olympiska spel.

 

Med tanke på hur bra det ändå gick i Kina, är det något speciellt du har tänkt på i ditt upplägg inför OS i Weymouth? – ”Det är så klart många olika saker vi har jobbat på men för att förbättra resultatet från Kina har jag framför allt försökt att fokusera på att segla så mycket som möjligt på plats i Weymouth, för att komma dit bättre förberedd. Jag tycker att jag har fått rätt så bra koll på förhållandena där nu. Det är ett fantastiskt ställe att segla på, men det är mycket att tänka på med allt från tidvatten, ström och vindar. Jag tror faktiskt att inte ens engelsmännen som har sin bas där vet exakt hur man skall segla där.”

 

Seglar ni svenska finnjolleseglare mycket ihop? – ”Jag har kört mycket tillsammans med min klubbkompis Björn Allansson. Annars har jag tränat mycket med Tapio Nirrko, en finsk seglare som jag delar tränare med. Sen har Johan Tillander kommit tillbaka efter att han slutade segla med Fredrik Lööf men vi har inte hunnit segla så mycket.”

 

Är det viktigt för dig och din uppladdning att bli uttagen tidigt till OS? – ”Det är bra att få ett tidigt besked så att upplägget kan anpassas till det, annars måste man ta hänsyn till ytterligare kvaltävlingar vilket tar tid från förberedelserna. Så jag tycker det är viktigt att få ett besked så tidigt som möjligt.”

 

Hur har det gått att träna och tävla och samtidigt ha en familj? Har det varit en utmaning? – ”Det skiljer sig såklart från tidigare. Det blir lite annorlunda eftersom det inte är roligt för någon att vara ifrån varandra för mycket. Vi försöker se till att familjen kan följa med så mycket som möjligt. Nu är alla här i Australien i några veckor och då blir det mycket lättare. Jag tycker det har funkat bra hittills.”

 

Det är svårt att skriva om finnjollesegling utan att nämna Ben Ainslie som med sina tre OS-guld och ett OS-silver dominerar klassen. Hur förhåller man sig till en sådan motståndare? Studerar du honom för att se vad det är han gör bättre eller försöker man mest se honom som vilken konkurrent som helst? – ”Det är både och. Man måste såklart försöka förstå vad det är han gör för att segla så bra. Både hur han behärskar båten och lägger upp träningen men även på materialsidan där han lägger mycket resurser. Jag har tränat lite med honom här nu i Australien, vilket alltid är kul. Även om han är bra är han inte oövervinnlig. Det är helt klart roligt att en sådan seglare finns med i klassen. I England räknas han som det största medaljhoppet bland alla idrottare inför nästa sommar. Så det är fantastiskt kul att få köra mot honom. Det är bara sporrande och det hade såklart varit kul att kunna slå honom.”

 

Vi önskar all lycka till och hoppas såklart att Daniel inte bara slår Ben Ainslie utan kanske även kan ta ytterligare en placering jämfört med Kina och kliva upp på pallen när OS avgörs i Weymouth nästa sommar.
