Dear friends, 


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of our friend and colleague, Tomas Leandersson on 2/11/2021. After a long fight against cancer, he,  surrounded by his family died. 

Tomas was a great athlete, champion, teacher and coach; dozens of people who were inspired by him to perform at their very best. He was such a wonderful man and he will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. He will never be forgotten.


Our deepest sympathies to his family.

May he rest in peace.
