The Danish Swimming Federation announced today that Mathias Gydesen has received the official invitation from FINA to compete at the London Olympics, expected as he was only 1 hundredth of a second from qualifying back in March.

Gydesen comments:

‘Of course I am relieved that the final decision has arrived, even though I saw it as a statistical trifle. I was and am still glad that the Danish Swimming Federation and the Sports Confederation of Denmark showed me faith back in april. Because of this, I have now the best opportunities to perform at the Olympics.’

The Danish Olympic squad is hereby complete:

Swimmers: Lotte Friis, Jeanette Ottesen, Rikke Møller Pedersen, Pernille Blume, Mie Østergaard Nielsen, Mads Glæsner, Mathias Gydesen, Daniel Skaaning, Anders Lie and Pál Joensen.

Coaches: Paulus Wildeboer (national coach), Bas Jan Stam (assistant coach), Jón Bjarnason (Faroe Islands, team coach)
