Welcome to the Ball Athlete!
Hello there! Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Tom Lindeman and I’m from the main city of Sweden, Malmo - Yes, the city of Zlatan Ibrahimovic! No wonder I started my early soccer career in his footprints and went through the Malmo Academy.
I was 19 when my career ended with a very serious injury, which didn’t allow me to continue pursuing my dreams. Right now I’m 28 years old and I'm a complete nerd when it comes to ball games of all types. Be it basketball, tennis, golf.. Anything! I enjoy doing these kinds of sports in my free time and I’m not gonna lie, it’s my life.
I found my other passion as well in being an entrepreneur and helping others achieve success! Currently, I run a few other businesses such as eCommerce brands here in my country. Besides work, I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend Anna (we’re 4 years together!). As a usual pair, we like to travel, go eat out and mostly just watch Netflix in bed 🙂
Anyways, In the beginning of 2021 I decided to start this blog you’re reading right now with the name “Ball athlete”. The main purpose of this blog is to help you wherever you are in your sports journey. You might be a parent looking up some information for your kid’s favorite sport, or you’re an amateur working hard to become a pro! It doesn’t matter, because I have something for everyone!
Back in the days when I was playing soccer, the internet was not that much crowded with the information as it is right now. Everything was a bit harder and your knowledge was limited to people that were around you. When you wanted to get some newest soccer cleats, you had to go physically to the nearest shop and buy what they got there.
Today? All you have to do is to just go to Google and type in “best soccer cleats” and you’ll immediately get hundreds of articles with amazing tips for your soccer cleats. Then you choose a store, pick the right size and get them delivered to your door. That’s the power of the internet nowadays.
I’m a firm believer that if you have access to the right information, you can do wonders. This doesn’t apply to only sports. Having proper knowledge can give you an edge in your life, your career or even your relationships. Also, it all depends on how you use that information. It’s not enough to only consume. We have to actually apply things we learn.
With that being said, I decided to create a blog that will give you all the information you will need! I try to cover most of the topic in the most consumable and simple way possible. I write in a way that I wish someone would give me that information years ago!
I write articles on these topics:
If this blog will help at least one person to improve his knowledge, or help make some progress in his sport abilities, it was worth creating it.
That’s why it was made. To help you on your life-sport journey!
I wish you all the best and I hope you will enjoy your stay!
btw. I am looking for writers, in case that's what you're interested, check write for us page!
