Carolyn Kluft has recently announced that she won’t be competing in her primary event, the heptathlon, in the Beijing Olympics. She will be competing in the long jump. She says she just doesn’t have the enthusiasm for the heptathlon as she once had and needs to take a break from it. She hasn’t ruled out the possibility that she will return to the competition at some point in the future. Meanwhile, she’s still on the track competing in other events.

Carolyn’s body build is tall, slender and muscular making her perfect for her events of running and jumping. She has excelled in the sport since she first started competing.

“Success for me is not to have all the medals. Success for me is to always do your best and try to develop and get better at every event”

Carolina Evelyn Kluft was born on February 2, 1983 in Sandhult, Sweden. Her mother was a long jumper and her father a footballer so it seems natural that she would have had natural athletic ability.

The blond beauty is 5′ 10″ tall and nicknamed ‘Carro’. In September 2007 she married pole vaulter Patrik Klüft. They were married at Crichton Parish Church in Midlothian, Scotland.

She is the only athlete ever to win three world titles in heptathlon. She won the heptathlon at the World Athletic 2003 in Paris, in the Olympic Games of 2004 in Athens, in Helsinki in 2005 and in Osaka in 2007. She is one of only a handful of athletes to hold all five available international titles, Olympic, World Outdoor, Regional, Outdoor, World Indoor and Regional Indoor. She has been unbeaten in all 22 heptathlon/pentathlon competitions since March 2002. She won nine consecutive gold medals in major championships. She has been nominated for four consecutive Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year awards from 2005-2008.
