The Bäckman Award 2020 goes to the young motocross rider Jacqueline Löfqvist, Filipstads MCK. The motivation is:
“For a wholehearted and successful investment in a rock-hard sport with high goals where blood, sweat and tears belong to everyday life. An investment that will put Filipstad on the motocross map in all of Sweden! "
On December 10, it was time to hand out this year's Bäckman Award of SEK 15,000. Jacqueline's biggest interest has always been and is motocross. The dream is to stand on the podium in the Swedish Championships before 18 years and then run the European Championships / World Cup. We are convinced that Jacqueline will succeed.
On the Jubilee Day, May 23, 2019, the Bäckman Award was handed over to the founders and creators of Filipstad Skateboard Park, Robin Fryk and Marcus Söderstedt. The skateboard park has become an important meeting place for all ages in Filipstad. The park also attracts visitors from other parts of Sweden and has thus become a tourist attraction. In addition to skateboarding, you can ride inlines, bmx and kickbike.
