What to expect

A hopefully formidable fight right from the start, when Mads Glæsner and Pál Joensen meet in the men’s 1500 freestyle. Chartres 2013 European SC silver medalist Viktor B. Bromer maybe threatening Simon Sjödin’s 200 fly Nordic record of 1:52.90. Lotte Friis similarly able to make another Nordic mark in the 400 freestyle, if she cares to swim real fast. Mie Ø. Nielsen winning easily in the 50 backstroke, but a lot of good fights in the remaining events.

Pál and Mads pretty beat at Istanbul 2012

Men’s 1500 freestyle

European Record Senior: Yuri Prilukov (1984) 14:16.13 2006-12-09
Nordic Record Senior: Mads Glæsner (1988) 14:26.74 2009-12-12

Favorites

  1. Mads Glæsner (1988) 14:30.01

  2. Pál Joensen (1990) 14:36.93*

  3. Anton Ørskov Ipsen (1994) 15:06.48

  4. Alvi Hjelm (1996) 15:39.14*

  5. Marc Bach Nielsen (1994) 15:44.28

  6. Nicolas Blanch (1997) 15:47.18

  7. Laust Moesgaard (1996) 15:48.03

  8. Jens Saugmann (1996) 15:51.64

Prediction

1500 usually follows the 400 pattern, and Mads Glæsner should therefore be the clear favorite, with Pál Joensen maybe having to check his six to see where Anton Ørskov Ipsen is at. Mads and Anton will make the Herning 2013 roster in this event, and maybe also one of those in the 15:40s, if they can step up to swimming 15:23.50 or better.

  6. Julie Brøndum Petersen (1994) 4:18.01

  7. Maj Howardsen (1997) 4:18.29

  8. Mathilde Huss-Hansen (1994) 4:18.44

Prediction

An easy win for Lotte Friis, and all three places filled in this event on the Danish Herning 2013 roster.

Men’s 200 butterfly

European Record Senior: Nikolay Skvortsov (1984) 1:49.46 2009-12-12
Nordic Record Senior: Simon Sjödin (1986) 1:52.90 2009-11-10

Favorites

  1. Viktor B. Bromer (1993) 1:53.37

  2. Jonas Sørensen (1990) 1:58.52

  3. Martin Terp Olesen (1994) 1:59.69

  4. Sebastian Strandberg (1994) 2:00.29

  5. Søren Dahl (1993) 2:01.33

  6. Rasmus Härsted (1994) 2:02.46

  7. Christian Røssel (1995) 2:05.18

  8. Frederik K. Mortensen (1995) 2:05.54

Prediction

Totally Viktor B. Bromer territory, just don’t know if he can or wants to swim real fast. Jonas Sørensen should make the Herning 2013 team too, and third or fourth placed only has to swim a second or two faster, to make the team.

Women’s 100 individual medley

European Record Senior: Katinka Hosszu (1989) 57.45 2013-08-11
Nordic Record Senior: Therese Alshammar (1977) 58.07 2009-11-26

Favorites

  1. Mie Ø. Nielsen (1996) 1:01.27

  2. Katrine Holm Sørensen (1992) 1:01.51

  3. Pernille Juel (1994) 1:02.83

  4. Julie Levisen (1997) 1:02.88

  5. Sidse Kehlet (1996) 1:03.03

  6. Lise-Lotte Larsen Bentin (1997) 1:03.82

  7. Maja Nielsen (1996) 1:04.39

  8. Amalie Mikkelsen (1997) 1:05.16

Mie Ø. Nielsen scratched this event, and Katrine Holm Sørensen is therefore a clear favorite, with No 2-4 contending. Three of them should make the Herning 2013 team.

Men’s 100 freestyle

European Record Senior: Amaury Leveaux (1985) 44.94 2008-12-13
Nordic Record Senior: Stefan Nystrand (1981) 45.54 2009-11-10
Danish Record Senior: Jakob S. Andkjær (1985) 47.44 2007-12-14

  5. Daniel Steen Andersen (1995) 49.57

  6. Frederik Siem Pedersen (1991) 49.91

  7. Søren Dahl (1993) 49.92

  8. Anton Bromer (1995) 50.17

Prediction

Magnus Westermann managed a time of 48.66 in the 4×100 relay, and therefore has to only win a medal, to be on the Herning 2013 team in this event. Emil S. Gregersen managed a time of 49.08, they need to swim 48.82 to make the team.

Women’s 50 backstroke

European Record Senior: Sanja Jovanovic (1986) 25.70 2009-12-12

  7. Caroline Erichsen (1998) 28.84

  8. Stine Raaby Jensen (1995) 29.09

Prediction

Mie Ø. Nielsen will win this easy, and Kristina Thomsen might well join her on the Herning 2013 roster. The rest will have to fight for it.

Men’s 50 breaststroke

European Record Senior: Fabio Scozzoli (1988) 25.72 2013-08-10
Nordic Record Senior: Aleksander Hetland (1982) 26.19 2009-12-12

Danish Record Junior: Mathias Andersen (1991) 27.88 2009-10-25
2012 Champ Senior: Niklas Hedegaard (1990) 27.63

Favorites

  1. Niklas Hedegaard (1990) 27.63

  4. Lars Merl (1993) 28.25

  5. Mikkel Hounsgaard (1993) 28.33

  6. Tobias Urban Hansen (1987) 28.57

  7. Mathias Andersen (1991) 28.66

  8. Viktor Christensen (1995) 28.87

Prediction

Niclas Hedegaard already made the Herning 2013 team in the 100 breaststroke, clocking 59.67 with an entry time of 1:00.15. Math says that he will make it also in the 50 breaststroke.

Women’s 4×200 freestyle and Men’s 4×200 freestyle

Not really Herning 2013 relevant, in fact a bit sad that the relays there are all 50s.
