POP, 1979: Sporty ABBA

A report about ABBA’s time in Leysin, Switzerland, where they filmed the ABBA in Switzerland TV special in February 1979.
One could already see in the film ABBA – The Movie that Anni-Frid is extremely fit. Because during the ABBA world tour, the red-haired Frida worked hard on her condition every morning, to be able to endure her demanding stage show.
That Frida is the most sporty member of ABBA, she proved in the snow as well, when ABBA had to swap the stage for skis and ice skates for a British television special during Easter in Leysin in the Swiss mountains.
The pictures on this two-page spread show what the outcome was.

All four members were athletic. Bjorn jogged, Agnetha jogged, swam, walked and does yoga, Benny played tennis and Frida enjoyed nature walks and they were all into skiing.
