This weekend Denmark will host the 2012 Nordic Youth Championships, at Bellahøj Svømmestadion in Denmark. Sweden and Denmark are clear favorites to win most medals, but tiny Faroe Islands are also able to compete, with several swimmers vying for both gold, silver and bronze medals.

A race that I personally look very much forward to, is Norway’s Henrik Christiansen vs Faroe Island’s Óli Mortensen vs Denmark’s Laust Moesgaard in the 1500 freestyle, Saturday morning. A scorcher to say the least, 7 guys under 17 minutes, 2 under 16:20 and 1 under 16:10, all aged 1996 or younger.
Also, I hope our 4 guys will be able to compete for medals in the men’s 4×100 freestyle, to demonstrate a bit of depth in our program. And of course that they all will be able to compete as well as they are ranked. With this and the European Juniors this weekend, we might just get a bit busy :-)
