Teresa Salming’s heartwarming tribute to little sister Bianca Salming – for the brave decision after father Börje’s death

The new documentary series about Börje and Bianca Salming has been released.
Then the high jumper is praised by older sister Teresa Salming.
“I know how hard you’ve worked and fought,” writes Teresa on Instagram.

The new documentary series “Salminggenen” was recently released on SVT Play. There you can follow Bianca Salmings career and grieving process, as well Börje Salmings tragic illness and death.

Teresa’s nice words

Filming has taken place between November 2021–September 2023. The series was originally going to focus solely on Bianca’s career and her mission to find out more about her father. Also Börje’s support and thoughts on how to reach the top of the world in sports. But shortly after filming began, Börje received his ALS diagnosis, and the documentary took a turn.

In an Instagram post, Bianca has shared the great difficulties that arose when filming the series after Börje’s death. But she made it – which is now praised by her older sister Teresa Salming.
“Bianca, my beloved sister. I am so damn proud of you and your journey with the series, and your continued journey in athletics and life. You’re still daddy’s daughter – incredible forehead bone, strong as an ox, and so nice, humble and loving, writes Teresa on her Instagram event.
