Klüft May Switch Events Ahead Of Beijing 2008

Swedish Heptathlete Carolina Klüft says there is a chance she may switch events ahead of next year’s Olympic Games in Beijing and not defend her Olympic Heptathlon Title there.

Speaking on Swedish TV SVT Tuesday, Küft says she still hasn’t made up her mind whether to concentrate on the Long Jump and Triple Jump rather than the physically demanding 2-day 7-event Heptathlon.

She says that she will probably make up her mind after the World Indoor Championships in March. Klüft’s personal best in the long jump is just 2 centimetres from the Swedish record, while she has won 1 Olympic, 3 World and 2 European Champion golds in the Heptathlon.
