Gunder the Wunder

Gunder the Wunder

He won 3 Individual Championships of the World, 2 Longtrack Championships of the World, was 5 times a World Pairs Champion and 7 times a World Team Champion. Despite his incredible success on track, he was the most modest man you could ever wish to meet, always had a smile for the photographers and time to chat with supporters. I am privilaged to know him and if anyone ever doubted his popularity, even more than 20 years after his track crash, they should have been at Coventry in early April 2010 when he received the biggest cheer of the night when he was introduced to the crowd. This is my tribute to 'Gunder the Wunder', Erik Gundersen.
