17-year-old Henrik Christiansen had an impressive run at the Eindhoven 2013 Swim Cup this weekend, first breaking three Norwegian junior records in the 200, 800 and 1500 on Saturday, and then taking down also the 400 freestyle Norwegian junior record on Sunday. Undoubtedly the strongest up-and-coming Nordic long distance swimmer, and that is saying a lot ! :-)
