They call it “Ólavsøkusvimjingin”, the 400 meter swim along the main pier of Tórshavn, right after the traditional boat races on our national holiday Ólavsøka. Me and Bartal had planned to film it in a relay fashion, one guy filming while the other moved to a new position along the route. Turned out to be an intense run through spectators, rain and large puddles, following this guy Magnus while trying not to become a part of the swim ourselves. Winner time Magnus Jákupsson, 4:43.0, here receiving a special prize for all his accomplishments at the European Juniors and Danish Championships this summer. Video will be ready later.
