Iceland hosts 4th annual dual meet against the Faroe Islands

0

Tomorrow 13 October 2012 at 16:00 local time, Sundlaug Kópavogs will be the venue of the 4th annual dual meet between Iceland and the Faroe Islands, in Kópavogur, Iceland. I expect us (the Faroese) to win a few battles, but alas yet again to loose the war :-)

Update: The 2012 ISL-FAR dual meet will be streamed live on SportTV.is

The competition is arranged as a 2 on 2 battle in selected events, both teams consisting of 16 swimmers, 8 men and 8 women. Last event is always the 8×50 mixed freestyle in which everyone competes, and which we the Faroese see as ‘the Final’, since we have been able to win it a couple of times :-)
