Biography

Marie Lindgren made her international début 1992, placing fourth at the World Championships and came in second in freestyle aerials at the Winter Olympics in Albertville, when the event was held as a demonstration. Two years later in Lillehammer, freestyle skiing became a full Olympic sport and she again took a silver medal in the women’s freestyle aerials. In addition, she won silver medals at the World Championships in 1993 and 1995 and six consecutive national championships from 1991-96. Her two World Cup victories came in 1992 and 1994, both in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Austria. Her career came to a sudden halt when she crashed after a triple vault, suffering a concussion and compressed vertebrae. Later, she worked as a physical education teacher and expert commentator for television. In 1995 Marie Lindgren was named an honorary citizen of her hometown of Skellefteå.
