CC photo #15: My paparazzi self-portrait from the Roma 2009 World Championships


Shot of myself through a mirror somewhere in the Holiday Inn Rome-Aurelia, during the Roma 2009 World Aquatics Championships. Those sponsored sun hats looked silly but were very practical in the blazing Italian sun, I still keep mine as a (in Faroe Islands totally useless) memento.

Paparazzi self-portrait

It reminds me of this great Roma 2009 promo produced by Rúni Friis Kjær from our national TV, featuring me and my good journalistic friend Jón Brian Hvidtfeldt (who also was with us when Pál won three gold medals at the Belgrade 2008 European Juniors). This is how all our Faroese swimming video material would be, if those two could do as they pleased ! :-)
