The woman's world record holder from Sweden, is that a traditional sounding Swedish name?

In 1986, the World Dwarf-throwing Championships were held in Australia. The USA was not represented, which may weaken the claim that the sport originated in the United States. The undisputed world champions who still currently hold the record were Team GB from London, England Danny Blue, Adam Aisthorpe, Roy Merrin and Lenny The Giant.
The current proven world record for the longest throw is held by a man known as Adam Aisthorpe, a member of the group referred to as The Oddballs with a throw of 12 feet 9 inches. However, there have been many claims of over 14 feet. The longest throw yet to be proven is believed to have reached 15 feet 2 inches by a man from Topeka, Kansas named Reese Lang. The female record-holder, Lucey Normosbuthol, hails from Sweden and entered the record books with an amazing throw of 11 feet 11 inches.
