Former NFL Kicker Ola Kimrin headlines Swedish kickers clinic

Sweden’s Stockholm Mean Machines, winners of the Swedish championship crown 10 times, are holding a clinic for kickers March 11-12 in Stockholm featuring former Swedish NFL kicker Ola Kimrin.

After starting his career with the Limhamn Griffins in 1994, Ola Kimrin went on to play at the University of Texas at El Paso before kicking for the Frankfurt Galaxy in NFL Europe.

Kimrin also kicked for the Cologne Centurions and Rhein Fire before kicking for the Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, Tennesee Titans, Maimi Dolphins and Washington Redskins. He played 10 games on Sweden’s national team and recorded the longest field goal in Swedish Super Series history (57 yards). He also kicked a personal best 65 yards field goal for the Denver Broncos in 2002 in a preseason game.
