about-me

About me

M y name is Sofia Enocsson Rito and I have dual Swedish and Uruguayan citizenship. I lift weights internationally for Uruguay, where I am currently the best female weightlifter in the country. On a national level, I compete for the club Allmänna SK – Eskilstuna, and I am Sweden’s best female weightlifter in the 53kg weight class.

My short-term goal is to perform well at the Houston World Championships and to qualify for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro 2016.

MY LIFE IN BRIEF:
I TRY TO LIVE LIFE IN THE MOMENT… THERE MAY NEVER BE A “LATER”.
Sofia Rito

At the moment, I am focusing entirely on my development, holding my aim high. Right now I’m training and competing for ASK – Eskilstuna in the 53kg and 58kg weight classes.

I try to live life in the moment, doing what I want to do. A few years ago I fulfilled my dream of opening a café with homemade baked goods. My wonderful partner and I moved from the big city to open “Sofia i Parken” in the small city of Strängnäs. I would never have made it without my amazing partner.

Throughout the years, working a lot and meeting wonderful people, I’ve never been able to let go of my training. I got into weightlifting almost by coincidence, in the autumn of 2012. I was hooked. Combining giving it 120% at work and a relatively high standard of training was tough on my recovery. I ended up wanting to live a new dream: giving weightlifting everything I’ve got. Today I train twice a day and work part time.

It’s been an amazing difference for the development of my training. It’s never too late! Still, I feel it’s a pity I hadn’t discovered weightlifting 10 or 15 years ago.

If I’d never dared live my dream, I might never have come into contact with the ASK weightlifting community in Eskilstuna. I am incredibly grateful for my awesomely competent coach, Jim Gyllenhammar, who helped me with my training until the end of 2015. He always made sure I was moving forward. I also have a lot to thank my fantastic friend Cilla, who I’ve also gotten to know through ASK. Thank you for all the support and pepping!

Not least, I have to thank myself for my stubbornness and willpower. I also want to send an overwhelming thank you to my amazing partner, who supports me in everything I do. Love you!

I’ve had my current trainer and coach Gunnar Lögdahl since the beginning of 2016. He’s responsible for my development and making sure that my training keeps advancing. Thank you!
