  • She is the one in the middle, in a blue top.

    She is maybe 50.

    She works out at my gym - all the time.

    She lifts heavier weights than the big male instructors, but no one would guess from looking at her.

    She told us a story about when she got robbed, here in Högdalen. A lot of junkies live here. One of them, an angry and confused young man, came up to her with a gun, late one evening. He took her wallet.

    She reported it to the police. The police officer wrote the report. Then he told her:

    "If you need any support or counseling, we can give that to you."

    "He's the one you should help, not me." she said.
