Svexa adding more speed, with analyst and Olympian Emil Blomberg

We're excited to announce that Olympian steeplechaser Emil Blomberg is joining svexa as an analyst. Emil is an elite runner focusing on distances from 1500m to 5000m. The steeplechase has been his main event - he represented Sweden in the 3,000m steeplechase at the recent Tokyo Olympics running, and in multiple European and World Championships.

In addition to his sporting prowess, Emil is an accomplished software analyst. He studied physics and ran on a scholarship for University of Texas Arlington, then was one of the first team members in the analytics department at Tryggkredit AB. He'll be joining our team to drive forward our new products slated for launch in coming months.

"Svexa is a perfect team for me - I have always liked to analyze my running performances and have collected data the last three years specifically to use in some kind of linear regression model. At svexa, I'll be able to combine my analytics with leading edge sports science, to deliver great results for athletes like me." - Emil Blomberg
