Former running star Sara Wedlund is dead – turned 45 years old

Sara Wedlund is dead. She turned 45 years old.

Wedlund was one of Sweden’s biggest running stars in the mid – 90s. In 1996, she competed in the Olympics and also took silver at the indoor European Championships and gold in the terrain European Championships. That same summer, she was awarded the Victoria Scholarship by the Crown Princess herself.

But during his career, Wedlund struggled with injuries and anorexia. Her career ended in 2003.

Nice and intelligent girl. He was a good person, one you remember with longing. It is always sad when someone passes away so young, says Hässelby SK’s chairman Bengt Olsson to Aftonbladet.
