Track Beauty of the Week: Ebba Jungmark
July 23, 2011Posted by on
Ebba Jungmark is this week’s track beauty!
Jungmark is next in line to the long list of excellent Swedish high jumpers. The twenty-four year old won her first major international medal at the European Indoor Championships in Paris early this year.
The young Swede set a new indoor personal best of 1.96m en route to her podium finish. Jungmark performed superbly despite the absence of her more illustrious compatriot Emma Green-Tregaro.
The Onsala-born athlete has won numerous Swedish titles as youth and junior athlete. Jungmark went to the United States for her college education. She made her mark across the pond, winning the 2008 NCAA Division I Indoor high jump title, a year after competing at the 2007 Osaka World Championships.
At the Istanbul World Indoor Championships, Jungmark – together win Russia’s Anna Chicherova and Italy’s Antonietta Di Martino – all shared a spot on the coveted podium. All three athletes had equally identical scorecards, with each clearing a best height of 1.95m and having three failures at 1.98m. The comebacking Chaunté Lowe won the event with a 1.98m clearance.
Now that was a win-win situation!
