Notes: Never seriously pursued running when growing up in Kenya, actually first came to Sweden to learn about orienteering, met husband-to-be Lars Andersson (orienteering coach) and together they realised that her best option was to focus on
running, not orienteering.
Became a Swedish citizen on 11 May ‘09.
Resides in Eldoret (Kenya) when training for major events.
Quickly back into competitive running after daughter Beyoncé was born on 25 Jan ‘09: On 25 Apr (i.e. just three months
later) finished 4th in the Swedish 4 km XC championships, on 16 May ran a 1:14 halfmarathon and on 30 May won the
Stockholm Marathon in 2:33!
On 22 Jan ‘10 became the first Swedish woman to run a sub-2:30 marathon (2:26:52 in Dubai). Has set 6 NR ‘09-‘12 at
10 km road (1), halfmarathon (2) and marathon (3). Won 6 national titles in ‘10: 5000m, 10000m, halfmarathon,
marathon, 4 km XC and 8 km XC.
Prefers road running and has only run eleven races on the track: one 1500m, fiver 5000m and five 10000m. After
marathon NR in January ‘11 (2:23:41) had arthroscopic surgery on left knee in March and then only raced three times
before the World Ch.
Has run 13 marathons (no dnf) and dipped under 2:30 six times.
At ’10 European Championships finished 5th in race but has now been promoted to 3rd as the winner and the runner-up
have both been retroactively dq’ed for doping offences.

Note: First year in athletics at age 14 did 1.71 in HJ and 25.52 at 200m. Just like Kajsa Bergqvist and Carolina Klüft
began international career by winning the HJ at the European Youth Olympics. After Helsinki bronze displayed great versatility by successfully venturing into also sprinting (7.42i/11.58/23.02) and horizontal jumping (6.41/13.69i).
However, from ‘07 onwards back to concentrating on the HJ. When raising PB to 2.01 for silver in the ’10 ECh became
second Swede to clear 2 meters. Won ’11 New York Diamond League ahead of i.a. Blanka Vlasic.
Married coach Yannick Tregaro 12 March ‘11.

Note: In ’11 NCh 400m final shocked everyone by lowering PB by 1.76 to 51.58 in the process eradicating the NR that
had stood for 25 years. At Swedish Sports Awards Gala in January ’12 received the “Newcomer of the Year”-award (all
sports considered) for ’11. At ’12 World Indoors claimed also the NIR which like the outdoor NR had stood since ’86. At
’12 European Ch despite non-conducive weather lowered NR in both semi and final to grab an unexpected gold medal.

Note: Has lived in Sweden for just about his whole life as he was only a few weeks old when family moved from Gambia
in early ‘82. Grew up in same neighbourhood as Christian Olsson, Yannick Tregaro and Patrik Kristiansson in the
Göteborg suburb of Angered.
The ‘95 WCh in hometown Göteborg made great impact on the 13 years old. Decided after seeing Sergey Bubka in action
that Pole Vault was the sport to pursue! Won final major meet before ‘05 WCh – the IAAF Super GP ”DN Galan” - defeating i.a. 5 of would-be Helsinki top-7 but still couldn’t be entered into the WCh due to not having made the then A-standard of 5.75.
When getting the chance in the ‘06 WICh immediately proved himself by taking the silver medal. Hampered by hamstring
problems during summer of ‘06 and winter and summer of ‘07. Missed ‘10 due to foot injury sustained when landing outside of the pit during training.
