Son of Speedway Legend shot in St. Petersburg! A great tragedy


On the morning of May 21, there was a shooting in St. Petersburg, Florida. Marcus Nilsen, 29, was shot dead by police. The Swede was transported to the hospital where, unfortunately, he died as a result of his injuries.

Marcus Nilsen was no stranger to motorcycles, and neither was his father. The son of a speedway legend was actively involved in motocross.

Jimmy Nilsen – the father of the dead shot is a Swedish legend in speedway sports. His biggest success was his second world championship in 1998. At that time, he was only 12 points behind his compatriot Tony Rickardsson.

Polish fans will remember Nilsen especially in the fantastic run that took place at the Grand Prix final in Wrocław. Then Tomasz Gollob, with an attack on the last corner, regained victory in the Swedish tournament, earlier bouncing off the gang with a motorcycle.

In Poland, Nilsen represents the clubs Zielona Góra, Piła, Grudziądz, Wrocław and Gniezno.
