“Walking With The Wounded” have updated their website with some pictures of Alexander Skarsgard during the training sessions with the US Team in advance of their South Pole Challenge.
The site is also reporting that Alex is the final member of Team US.
We arrived in Malibu at a beautiful horse ranch, owned by Inge’s friend Klaus. It was at this ranch we met for the first time the newest, and final, addition to WWTW Team US; actor Alexander Skarsgard. What a great complement to our team! I am even more confident that we have a winning combination now.
That morning we all sat for breakfast and then embarked on a four hour hike up some California switchbacks. Alex immediately connected with each and every member on the team during the hike…………….
This past weekend in LA was a great experience for Team U.S. It gave us another chance to bond and continue to experience and gain knowledge in each others strengths and weaknesses. I always appreciated my team coming together and acting as my guide during these training sessions. In closing, I believe the US team is shaping up nicely! We are dynamic. We all bring certain strength that makes it quite unique. Now that we have Alex to complete our team I am confident we are on our way. Alex is genuine, easy to talk to, and displayed his willingness to be a team player. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty and was eager to train in order to be an asset… and an asset he will be as he is in excellent physical condition!
Next up, Norway. I am looking forward to meeting up with all the teams!
