Calle is a Swedish cross-country skier from Sweden who joined Team Northug in 2019. This was quite surprising to many, as Calle and Petter Northug had an ongoing media feud for years prior.
They both participated on the Scandinavian reality show “Landskampen” who aired on TV in Norway and Sweden in 2019/2020 where we got to see the two of them together in a setting outside of the cross-country tracks for the first time.
During the show he proved that he has talent in more than just a cross-country. He won many of the different challenges they were faced with and was recognized as “multi-talented” by the other participants in the show, including Therese Johaug and Emil Iversen.
His biggest achievements in cross-country is his two World Championship realy team Silver Medals in in 2013 and 2015.
