Pál Joensen won the men’s 800 freestyle at the 2011 Duel in the Pool a minute ago, in a new Faroese and Nordic record of 7:36.24. Convincing victory too, as USA’s Michael Klueh was No. 2 in 7:39.90, and Denmark’s Mads Glæsner No. 3 in 7:42.27. Pál’s former Faroese record was from back in the supersuit days, 7:43.38 from the European Championships in Istanbul 2009, the Nordic of Mads Glæsner 7:39.45 from the same event. See result list here.
