Tonje Angelsen

Tonje Angelsen (born 17 January 1990) is a Norwegian high jumper. Angelsen was considered a promising high jumper when she set a Norwegian age record at 1.82 m 16 years old (2006). Her career stalled somewhat because of injury until 2009. In 2010 and 2011 she qualified to several international championships but did not make it to the finals. In January 2012 she managed a personal best of 1.93 m indoors. At meeting in Oslo on 24 May she jumped to a new personal best outdoors of 1.95 m which was also the qualifying height for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
