Danish Trials Day 1 Prelims: Calm before the storm


Nothing special this morning at the Danish Trials, in the men’s 100 freestyle they had favorites Daniel Skaaning and Jakob Andkjær qualifying alongside guest swimmers Andrey Grechin (RUS), Aschwin Wildeboer (ESP) and Olaf Wildeboer (NED), in the women’s 100 freestyle Jeanette Ottesen, Pernille Blume and young gun Mie Ø. Nielsen, in the men’s 100 breaststroke Chris Christensen and Morten Klarskov, the women’s 100 breaststroke as excepted not the recently injured Rikke Møller Pedersen, in the men’s 400 freestyle Anders Lie, Pál Joensen and Mads Glæsner, in the women’s 400 freestyle Lotte Friis alongside Grainne Murphy (IRL) and Cecilie W. Johannesen (NOR), in the men’s 200 IM Chris Christensen and Morten Klarskov alongside Erik Persson (SWE), and in the women’s 200 IM Kathrine Holm Sørensen.

I’ve prepared www.swimmersdaily.com/live for tonight’s finals, starting at 17:30 local time, 16:30 UTC (there is a clock showing UTC-time on the live-page). As announced also broadcasted online by DR, hopefully so that people also outside Denmark can watch.
