IDA NILSSON

The Queen

Sweden, 37 years old

Forged in Sweden, Ida is a quiet and reserved queen who proved her legs in the 3,000-meter steeplechase in which she was one of the best in Europe. An injury forced her to give up and she took up the sport again on trails rather than in the stadium. Her record is now well-established. She dominates the sport.
