  • Table tennis has no age limit

    I was 6 years old when I started and was so happy when I got to play with my big brother Kjell-Ake Waldner in Spårvägen BTK-spårets vänner. Table tennis is a great sport and a sport where you can play against anyone, regardless of age!

  • Met Alexander Skarsgård

    I had the pleasure of meeting the actor Alexander Skarsgård. He’s a loyal Hammarby fan, just like me! I saw him in his last movie ”Tarzan” a short while ago, which I thought was great!
    Alexander has, just like me, gotten a nickname from his chinese fans which is ”E大”. His nickname originates from his role as the vampire Eric Northman in the hit tv show ”True Blood”

    I found a couple of young Hammarby supporters as well 

    Hi again, now I´m back home in Sweden after a very exciting trip to Shanghai. Together with many great boardmembers from Ikea, as well as director Mathias Kamprad, I took part in the opening ceremony of a large new shopping centre in the city Vuxi. It´s been a very interesting and fun experience to work all of them. Furthermore, about a month ago I also worked for Volvo with their golf tournament "Volvo China Open" in the city of Shenzhen, which is in the Guangdong province in southern china. I must say it feels very cool being a Swede and working with these companys!

  • Happy kids


    It's always fun to meet children and young people who are interested in ping-pong. The other day I visited a company in Stockholm where many children had gathered to play table tennis against me, ask questions and get an autograph. A really great day!

    I just got back from Berlin. I was there along with the company "Donic" to work at the German Championships in table tennis. There were a lot of really good matches. During the two days that we were there so I signed about 1000 autographs for my fans! It was a great feeling to meet so many table tennis enthusiasts.

  • World Cup

    FIFA World Cup In Brazil & Journey to Hong Kong
    Here I am with my friend and football legend Tomas Brolin. We had a really great evening as we watched the game between Sweden and Austria last week. Now it will be interesting to see which team they will meet in the playoffs. It will probably be a trip to Brazil next summer 

  • Hong Kong here i come

    There is a lot to prepare for the trip to Hong Kong tomorrow.

    I've been there many times before, but it's always exciting to come back. Meetings with new people, good food and fantastic culture. I feel incredibly humbled and proud for all the attention I get when I come to China.

    Did you know that approximately 300 million people in China play table tennis a few times a week :)

  • Many meetings

    Many meetings

    There have been many meetings in recent days. Last weekend I played an exhibition match with my good friend and table tennis legend Mikael Appelgren. It was a tough game when we both wanted to win

    I really like to do that kind of arrangement. Especially for companies that want to make a special happening for its partners and employees. It is always very appreciated!

    I was also really celebrated by my family and friends on my birthday. And i also want to thank all of you who send me greetings!

    I really look forward to my trip to Hong Kong this weekend. There are several interesting meetings scheduled.

  • My new watch. Royally stylish!

    I simply say: Sjöö Sandström. Makes you proud to be Swedish! The watch is called Royal Steel Chronograph. Not too flamboyant, just about right.

  • Lots to fix before my trip

    Need to get a new visa now that we're going to Beijing next week. Had a visa for two years that has just expired. I just have to complete the form and look happy. Hope that they will accept me...

  • Life feels really great

    Today was match day. I don't think I have played in such an inspired way and with such self-belief for a long time. I won today against the talented Fred Åkerström, current Swedish champion by 11-4, 11-4, 11-4. Only twelve dropped points! And soon I'll be on my way to China for the launch of my stamp…
