Farewell to Brede Havneraas


Only a short time after our 60th Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo 2020 in Carezza, we received particularly sad news. Our friend and active member of the Standing Committee, Brede Havneraas, has passed away. 

Since 2017 Brede was a member of the Standing Committee. As leader of the Nordea Sports Association from 2007 to 2015 and as a member of the Board of Nordea's "Olympics", he brought a wealth of experience in the management, organisation and development of major events. 

In our Committee, Brede was our expert for the cross-country skiing competitions, among other things. At the 60th Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo 2020 in Carezza, he also participated successfully in all cross-country skiing competitions with great commitment and enthusiasm.

His ideas, his innovative proposals and his interesting and thoughtful contributions to discussions enriched our work. Brede was a man of fine character. He had a friendly and winning manner and was always in a contagious good mood. 

Brede died of a heart attack on 07 February 2020 while cross-country skiing in the Telemark in southern Norway. He was 63 years old.

We wish his family much strength to overcome the great sorrow. Brede will always be remembered as a friend with a big heart and an open mind.
