Paulus Wildeboer passes away, 59 years old


Yesterday evening the sad news were received that Paulus Wildeboer has died from prostate cancer. Paulus was father of Olaf and Aschwin Wildeboer, coaching in Spain for more than 25 years before becoming national head coach of Denmark, and then after London 2012 mentor coach of Swimming Queensland.

A tough but excellent coach, he as Danish national coach had a tremendous impact in securing 10 medals at the World Championships, elevating swimmers like Lotte Friis, Rikke Møller Pedersen and Jeanette Ottesen to the absolute world elite.

Rest in peace, Paulus.
