CC photo #9: Supporters admiring Pál Joensen’s third Belgrade 2008 gold medal


Fond memories from back at the Belgrade 2008 LEN European Junior Swimming Championships, when Pál Joensen won gold in the 400, 800 and 1500 freestyle. This particular medal is most certaintly the third and last one he won, the 800 freestyle on the day when the photo was taken, August 2, 2008.

I’d lost my luggage, btw, and therefore had only my old trusty Nokia N93 mobile phone and a Sony DSC-HS96E tape-based video camera to take photos with, even having to save battery on the video camera because the charger was in the suitcase. So unfortunately, I have about 1000 photos less from Belgrade 2008, than I’d otherwise have taken.
