Christer Flythström is editor at Swedish sports tarde magazine, Sportfack and moderator at the European Outdoor Summit.

For nearly four years Christer Flythström has worked as editor for Sportfack, the biggest trade magazine for the sports industry in Sweden. His speciality is writing about cycling, paddling and other outdoor activities.

Before becoming editor at Sportfack, Christer worked nearly 20 years as a news reporter both in the public radio and television. First in his hometown Helsinki, at the Finnish Broadcasting Company YLE. Later, both at The Swedish Television SVT, and the commercial television channel TV 3-Direkt. He has also worked as a foreign correspondent in New York in 1992-93 for various radio companies.

His passion for the outdoors and sports came from his father who liked camping, fishing and watching sports. Christer bought his first kayak with the money he got from his first rock-album, released in early 1980. Since those years he has left the rock-business, became a journalist but remained a keen cayaker!.
