The Faroese Mafia


No, these are not The Faroese Mafia, but our up-and-coming swimming stars. From left to right Magnus Jákupsson, Faroese born and raised who moved to Denmark in August 2011, but who still competes for our islands. Frans Johannesen, son of a Faroese couple who moved to Denmark when he was a kid, therefore raised in Denmark and competing for them. And Pál Joensen, born and raised and still training here. Between the three of them, they have qualified for the A-final in every event at the Danish Open 2012 they’ve participated in, only Magnus was disqualified in the 200 IM (bad boy!). The real Faroese Mafia is best kept a secret.
