Track Beauty of the Week: Emma Green-Tregaro
August 8, 2010Posted by on
Emma Green-Tregaro is this week’s track beauty!
During the heyday of the big five of Swedish athletics (Carolina Kluft, Kajsa Bergqvist, Stefan Holm, Christian Olsson and Susanna Kallur), the young Emma Green had already made her mark on the world stage.
As a 21-year old, Green grabbed bronze behind Berqvist’s gold at the rain-soaked 2005 Helsinki World Championships, where the former cleared 1.96m.
Green won Sweden’s only medal at the 2010 Barcelona European Championships, jumping to a new personal best of 2.01m, behind Blanka Vlasic. With her entry into the 2.00 meter club, the unassuming lass has bolstered her status into the high jump elite – and as the small, but athletically-astute Scandinavian country’s ace track & field talent.
Green-Tregaro has had a consistent 2011 season. Despite inclement weather, she took the scalp of Vlasic at the New York Diamond League. A few days later, she wowed the Swedish crowd at the historic Ullevi Stadium at the SPAR European Team Championships.
The Swede has tremendous athletics talent. Through the years, she has won national titles in the sprints (100m, 200m) and the horizontal jumps (triple jump and long jump) as well.
