Exciting stuff, our guy Pál Joensen will be competing against Paul Biedermann in the 400 free, and is the favorite in the 1500. Other interesting names are for instance Geoff Huegill and Eamon Sullivan from Australia, Therese Alshammar and Stefan Nystrand from Sweden, Ingvild Snildal and Alexander Dale Oen from Norway, David Verraszto and Zjuzsanna Jakabos from Hungary, Chad Le Clos from South Africa, Pawel Korzeniowski from Poland, Velimir Stjepanovic from Serbia, Naoya Tomita from Japan, Tyler McGill from USA and Sun Ye and Lu Ying from China. See the startlist here on simforbundet.se.
I’ll be attending myself with Pál, Jón and 4 of our younger talents, so expect to see more material here then. The World Cup leg in Stockholm is in my view a fantastic event, not only because of good competition facilities, but also because we all live tight and cozy in the nearby hotel. A huge inspiration for our upcoming swimmers, to be having breakfast with the likes of Alexander Dale Oen and Jeanette Ottesen.
