Cross-Country racer athlete Fredrik Karlsson was killed in an accident with a snowmobile in Bruksvallarna on Thursday. Atomic grieves for a strong athlete and an exceptional person.

Fidde is dead. Fidde – this is how his friends called the young, easy-going man from Sweden. Nordic athletes and teams are shocked about the news of the death of ATOMIC athlete Fredrik Karlsson. The tragedy happened during a ski-doo excursion during a training camp in Jämtland, Sweden.

Last season, Karlsson celebrated successes as athlete, ranking third in the overall Scandinavian Cup after two victories. The student from Vetlanda participated in 12 World Cup races and had just joined a new training / development team of the Swedish National Team. Fredrik Karlsson turned 27 on the 1st of April.
