  • Olsson, comeback with 17.24 [56-6¾]

    I just dropped by www.friidrott.se, which claims that Christian Olsson has
    jumped 17.24 in a local Swedish meet.

      Fantastic news in an otherwise bad swedish summer

      Reportedly the jump was made with a good tailwind +1,8 but on the other hand with more than 20cm to spare!

      His coach was overwhelmed by the result and said that he had jumped up against 16,70 in training.
      Next competion will be the NC next weekend and after that he will decide on Berlin.

            Glad to hear this. I hope he'll be in Berlin and in good enough shape to fight for the medals. I always liked him. All the other Swedes seem to be injured or retired at the moment.

              That is wonderful news.

              He has had just about the worst luck any athlete could have.

              I would love to see him at Worlds.

                It was a very big surprise. About a week ago his coach Tregaro declared in media in Sweden that Berlin was out of question and maybe that Olsson can compete at the end of season only. Tregaro/Olsson however said at that time that next competition will be a secret one with no announcement. And it sure was secret. I only read earlier today at www.friidrott.se about this and could not believe my eyes. Fantastic news for Sweden!

                  I agree to disagree. I am not sure over competing in TJ and then getting injured can be considered bad luck.....
                  Nobody ever even dare to compete that many times in those good seasons....and he pays the price.... Not really impressed with his and his coach common sense.

                        I think you made your point - the 3rd time's the charm!

                          Actually, there is something almost artistic about it: He makes three posts,
                          his post count lands at 123 (at the time I am writing)---and the thread deals
                          with the triple jump.

                          (His point, BTW, is not without merit.)

                            You are overposting...watch out for carpal tunnel syndrome!

                            You would really hate to miss the Worlds! :wink:


                            (I don't know much about how many times Olsson competed etc. I just feel bad for him).
