Unhappy Kasja Bergqvist retires from athletic

Kajsa Bergqvist stopt met hoogspringen

ma 07/01/08 - Hoogspringster Kajsa Bergqvist (31) zet met onmiddellijke ingang een punt achter haar carrière. De Zweedse ex-wereldkampioene kan zich naar eigen zeggen niet meer motiveren.

Het afscheid van Kajsa Bergqvist komt op een verrassend moment, met de Spelen van Peking in het vizier.


"Maar ik kan de nodige motivatie niet meer opbrengen", argumenteert een concurrente (maar ook een vriendin) van Tia Hellebaut.

"Ik heb nu zin in een nieuw leven", zegt Bergqvist die op 31 december in het huwelijksbootje stapte.

Bergqvist werd in 2005 wereldkampioene hoogspringen (foto). In 2001 en 2003 won ze het WK indoor. In zaal heeft ze ook het wereldrecord in handen.

Translation :

Kasja Bergqvist retires from Athletic. The Swedish ex-worldchampion has no motivation anymore for the sport.

" I can't motivate myself anymore " said Kasja, concurent and also friend of Thia Hellebaut.

" I want to begin a new life " says Bergqvist who got married last 31th december.

Bergqvist became worldchampion high-jumping in 2005 ( picture ). In 2001 and 2003 she won the WC indoor. In indoor she also has a worldrecord in hands.
