Video: Men’s 200 freestyle final at Danish Open 2012


This is what the DR live stream sounded and looked like. As I’ve mentioned, a bit cloudy, but with excellent sound and commentary. Oh and yes, our guy won, Pál Joensen 1:48.98 and a new Faroese record, Mads Glæsner 2nd in 1:49.05, Daniel Skaaning 3rd in 1:49.85 and Anders Lie 4th in 1:49.86. Tomorrow they get to swim the 4×200 freestyle, to try for 7:15.65 and Olympic qualification.

And here is René Thomsen’s much better quality video from the pool deck
