Lindy Melissa Løvbræk Wiik (born 7 February 1985 in Slemmestad) is a Norwegian footballer who plays for Urædd FK and the Norway national team.

Career[edit]

Asker played in the elite Toppserien league in Norway, and Wiik was the league's top scorer of the 2007 season, with 22 goals from 22 matches.[1] At the start of 2009 Wiik with most of the other Asker players joined the newly formed Stabæk Fotball Kvinner, continuing in the Toppserien. In January 2010 Wiik signed to play for the German club VfL Wolfsburg, and scored her first three goals for her new club at an indoor tournament on 23 January with over 4000 spectators.[2]

In 2011 Wiik transferred back to Norway to rejoin Stabæk FK, but in early May she suffered a damaged anterior cruciate ligament for which she had surgery in June. She aimed to recover in an unusually quick time and already by early October she was doing football training.[3]
