Anna Jönsson Haag
– Olympic gold medalist
Anna Haag-Jönsson has her roots in Köping, but grew up in Orsa – and consequently played the violin before the ski interest took over. She attended Mora ski gymnasium from 2002 to 2006 and competed for IFK Mora until 2016.
She made her big international breakthrough in the season 2007-2008 when she finished 12th in the Tour de Ski. The following season she finished seventh and in 2009 she finished third in two World Cup competitions. It was just the beginning.
At the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, she started strongly with a fourth place in the 10 km free style. It was followed up with a second place in the double chase and one more silver medal along with Charlotte Kalla in the women's sprint relay.
However, she took the big scalp four years later at the Sochi Olympics when she, together with Ida Ingemarsdotter, Charlotte Kalla and Emma Wikén, won the relay gold medal in 4x5 km. It also gave the four Svenska Dagbladet gold medals.
In March 2018, she ended her professional skiing career.
