Nordqvist excited for Olympic challenge
Anna Nordqvist revealed that competing in the Olympics has always been a goal of hers.
The Swede is the nation's top ranked golfer, currently sitting at 19th on the world rankings. With Pernilla Linberg being the only other lady in the top 100 in 76th, much of the medal hopes will fall on her shoulders.
"I definitely feel like I'm going to be part of the Swedish team," acknowledged the LPGA player.
"It's going to be the first time, so we really don't know what to expect.
"I know from talking to other athletes and other Olympic athletes I was watching a lot growing up, the way they talk about the Olympics, the way they talk about the experience in the Olympic Village and the way they go about it, they work so hard and then they have that one minute every four years. Like we still have our majors, we still have our other tournaments.
"The way they talk about it, I cannot imagine what it's going to feel like. So I'm sure I'm going to be able to look back on my career and say, 'I made it to the Olympics,' and talk about what a special feeling it was."
When asked if she would rather win a medal for Sweden or a major title for herself, Nordqvist revealed she would go with the former.
"If I couldn't have both, right now I'd probably say the Olympics, because I'm going to have more chances to win a British Open than I ever would have to compete in the Olympics," said the 29-year-old.
"You get asked that question a lot. I wouldn't be picky. I think the majors are still going to weigh a little higher as far as the history. But this is such a rare opportunity. As an athlete, I think it would mean a lot."
