I'm happiest when I'm moving.


In his 20's, he made a bet with a woodworking friend named Fjolnir Porgeirsson that each could master a sport of the other's choosing he knew nothing about in three years. Magnus choose snooker for Fjolnir and Fjolnir choose aerobics for Magnus. Just as Magnus became a champion in aerobics, Fjolnir became a champion in snooker. See more »
