Jessica Davskog, Journalist
World Table Hockey Association
JESSICA DAVSKOG is a staff journalist of the World Table Hockey Association (International), Sweden.
Born and raised in the small town of Strängnäs in Sweden, close to a large lake and even larger woods—outdoors has always been a part of Davskog’s life. She grew up skiing, ice skating, climbing trees and playing in the mud.
Davskog moved away for a few years earning a degree in Psychology, but once she had children she decided to return home in 2009. She’s happy to be home, so they can grow up with family relatives nearby and enjoy the great outdoors as Davskog did as a child.
Now that Davskog is back home, she can enjoy her free time enjoying the great outdoors — doing things like camping, swimming, and hiking. Surrounded by family, she tell us that her “kids are the loves of my life, and I do enjoy spending time with them, and I’m a part of a close-knit family.”
Reading and writing are some of Davskog’s passions. With Swedish as her native language, English her second language, and continuing to improve her German language abilities, Davskog’s spent the majority of her working years as a translator and writer.
Davskog says she is, “Grateful and happy to do something I love for a living!”
So why is she interested in writing about hockey or table hockey?
Davskog told us, “As you probably know, Sweden is a proud ice hockey nation. Hockey is one of the Sweden’s most popular sports – as of today, the national hockey teams rank (by IIHF World Ranking) as #1 in the world (men’s team) and #6 (women’s team). Hockey is a BIG thing here!”
We surmised the WTHA is providing her the opportunity to bring together her passions — writing, translating, sports (hockey), Sweden and share them with the world when she closed her letter to us by writing, “I am excited to be part of WTHA as a writer and to cover Table Hockey related stories in Sweden and Europe!”
