No Bengtsson in Daegu

Unread postby atlegu » Tue Aug 09, 2011 7:23 am

Swedish junior world record holder Angelica Bengtsson will not compete in the world championship in Daegu.

Acording to, the swedish track organization, Angelica has an injury in her hand, and does not want to go to worlds without being sure she can do her best.

After her amazing indoor season, Angelica has troubled somewhat with injuries outdoors, but managed her main goal this season, winning the european junior championship, and jumping 4.57 meter.

I'm sure Angelica will be a strong candidate for the podium already in the olympics next year.
