The top athletes from the Semifinals will be invited to compete at the 16 years old, she quit horse-riding and started in the world of fitness and running.. She competed in Fitness in 2012 and 2013 nationally placing 2nd and 3rd. After this period she felt she wanted to improve physically, feel stronger and increase her capabilities.
First time in CrossFit
It was in 2013 that she decided to try CrossFit without leaving fitness. In this transitional period Dahlstrom did cardio sessions in the box and strength in the traditional gym.
That same year, the owners of the box recommended her to take the Open even though she did not know how to do the double unders, and some weightlifting exercises, but she was able to do several exercises in a strict way such as toes to bar or pull ups.
At the beginning of 2014 she left CrossFit because of the pressure to compete.
After 6 months training at the gym, Jacqueline started to feel bored with that kind of training and that's when resumed CrossFit classes in September 2014..
Jacq spent time improving her skills and perfecting each movement, her goal was to be able to perform all exercises and in the Open 2015 she managed to be 3rd in Norway (54th in Europe). These results made her decide to take it more seriously and start a specific program to be able to go to Regionals.
In 2016 she participated for the first time in Regionals and would do so every year thereafter. That year she started The Progrm programming with John Singleton.
In 2017 meets Singleton in person and designed a more specific programming for her objectives. In that year she finished 8th at Regionals.
In 2018, she came very close to qualifying for the Games by placing 6th at Regionals. (only 4 qualified). Two weeks later she won the French Throwdown and in the same year the Spanish and the Torian. They decided to participate in more competitions to gain more experience and then she moved to Mallorca.
John Singleton also becomes Jacqueline's partner.
