Danish swimmer Mathias Gydesen managed a 54.75 and joint 3rd with Ryan Lochte in the men’s 100 backstroke at the Indianapolis Grand Prix a moment ago, meaning that he probably missed the qualification for the London 2012 Olympics, after being only one hundredth of a second outside the FINA A qualification time of 54.40 this morning.
Situation is therefore still that there will be 9 swimmers on the Danish Olympic Team: Lotte Friis (400 & 800 free, 4×100 free), Jeanette Ottesen (50 & 100 free, 4×100 free, 4×100 medley), Rikke MÃ¸ller Pedersen (100 & 200 breast, 4×100 medley), Pernille Blume (50 & 100 free, 4×100 free, 4×100 medley), Mie Ã˜. Nielsen (100 back, 4×100 free, 4×100 medley), PÃ¡l Joensen (400 & 1500 free, 4×200 free), Mads GlÃ¦sner (400 free, 4×200 free), Daniel Skaaning (4×200 free) and Anders Lie (4×200 free), Daniel Skaaning and Anders Lie though only if the Danish 4×200 freestyle is among the 16 fastest in the world at the deadline in June.
If I understand their system correctly, only one more swimmer can make the team, when Kathrine Holm SÃ¸rensen competes as only Danish swimmer at the Debrecen 2012 Europeans in May. That is if Gydesen is not selected to join Holm SÃ¸rensen at the Europeans or something.
