Notes: Never seriously pursued running at home 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.
During the coldest winter months in Sweden resides in Eldoret (Kenya). 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 5 NR '09-'11 at 10
km road (1), halfmarathon (1) 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 nine races on the track: one 1500m, four 5000m and four 10000m. After marathon
NR in January '11(2:23:41) had surgery on left knee in March and then only raced three times before the World Ch.

Notes: 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. Set PB with 1.99 and 2.01 for silver in the European Ch '10
and became the second Swede after Kajsa Bergqvist to reach 2 meters. Married her coach Yannick Tregaro on 12 March '11.

Notes: 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.

Lausanne Super Grand Prix).
In first "competitive" TJ as a senior in the match vFIN '04 did 13.87 with right foot take-off and 13.73 with left foot takeoff! On 19 March '08 announced – giving "need for a new challenge" as reason – decision to quit the Heptathlon (after six
years as undisputed No 1!) to instead concentrate on the LJ and TJ. Thus stopped winning streak in heptathlon at 19 (with
average winning margin of 333 points)!
Had a tibia stress fracture in late '08 and in June '09 suffered severe hamstring pull that demanded operation. Returned to
competition on 19 May '10. Set a SB of 6.62 in the qualification at the European Ch '10 which was her first championships
in two years.

Notes: First coach Viljo Nousiainen had developed club mate Patrik Sjöberg into the world’s premier high jumper in mid
1980’s. When Viljo suddenly passed away in spring of '99 Yannick Tregaro (himself guided by Viljo to 2.17 and a World
Junior Ch final at age 18 in '96) stepped in as coach despite being Christian’s senior by just two years.
“Birth” as true world class triple jumper on 14 June '01: On a rain-soaked Helsinki Olympic Stadium got first 17m-mark as
well as first victory over legend Jonathan Edwards. Since first exceeding 17m has surpassed that limit in 107 out of 116
meets (including a streak of 58 meets). Adding five qualification rounds he has 109 competitions at 17+!
Achieved the "Grand Slam" of championships (OG, WCh, WICh, ECh, EICh) in '02-'04. In '04 claimed 50% of the Golden
League jackpot after winning the TJ at all six meets. Kept out of competition from 18 Sep '04 until 12 June '06 by ankle
injury which needed four operations. Despite that long layoff had 17.09 in first attempt in comeback meet and in less than a
month had reached 17.62.
In seven of his eight international championships qualifying rounds from '01 WCh onwards achieved the pre-set standard for
the final on his very first attempt. Persistent hamstring problems ruined most of '05-'09. From 13 July '07 to 1 February '10
only competed four times: one outdoor meet in '08 and three in '09.
Resided in Monaco '02-'11 but moved back to hometown Göteborg in July '11. Undisputed No 1 in the EAA voting for
male “European Athlete of 2003”.

Notes: US Collegiate (NCAA) champion in '04 & '05. When winning in '04 improved PB from 73.98 to 77.62 in qualification and further to 80.71 in the final.
In the '09 edition of the prestigeous match vs Finland was leading going into the final round and only one of the three
Finnish throwers managed to – barely – pass and grab the win.
Due to persistent back problems forced to compete sparingly in the last five years. E.g. opened this season as late as 15 July.
At the European Team Ch in Stockholm in June '11 finally broke his seven year old PB with 17 cm (80.88) when surpassing
80 m in three out of four throws. Before the meet he had two throws in total over 80m.
