Unique Personality

However, Ferry is not just an athlete. He is a thoughtful, eloquent man who is a truly unique personality in biathlon. He lives in one of the least populated parts of Sweden, with his arm-wrestling champion wife, a new son and a back yard filled with acres of trees. The trees according to Ferry are part of his investment in the future.

As serious as he is about his sport and the environment, the Swedish biathlon star is also one of the funniest men in the sport.

Ferry’s serious and lighter sides come through in the following video, “Bjorn Ferry: My Sport, Music and Trees.”
