Hetland vs Dale Oen: It’s a tie!


At the Norwegian short course championships today, Aleksander Hetland and Alexander Dale Oen met in the 50 breaststroke, Hetland having won bronze in the Dubai 2010 World short course championships, and Dale Oen being the European champion in the 100 long course breaststroke. During prelims Hetland was faster, also leading the first half of the final, but then Dale Oen came back strong, tying Hetland with a 27.61. Coaches comment that it wasn’t a good race for neither of them, as they are a bit worn out, but that it means a lot to have them competing against each other on home turf. Source: Aftenposten.
