Erling Haaland was born in Leeds to an athletic family. Coming from athletic family background, it is no surprise that Erling was exposed to sports at a young age.

That does not mean that Erling's mother is someone ordinary, as she was a national champion heptathlete in the 1990s in Norway. Gry Marita also participated in track and field, a sport that had seven events.

Alf-Inge has been noted as a key player in his son's career path and has hinted at several more movements for the striker. Alf-Inge disclosed that he made sure his son would test himself in a host of sports and learn what better suits him.

Growing up in a sporting family, he had early exposure to sports. His parents used to take him to athletics so he could test himself and better explore various sports before opting for football.

As revealed by his dad, Erling played athletics, handball, and cross-country skiing till he turned 14, and his Norway's handball manager wanted him to play handball. But Erling decided to choose football and signed up with Bryne FK, where his dad's dreams took off.
