Denmark’s Mathias Gydesen nominated for the Olympics


The Danish Swimming Federation today announced that it will nominate Mathias Gydesen for the London 2012 Olympic Games, based on his 54.41 result in the men’s 100 backstroke prelims at the Indianapolis Grand Prix, only 1/100th of a second off the FINA A Olympic qualifying time but better than the FINA B Olympic Invitation time of 56.30. The Danish Olympic team therefore consists of 10 swimmers, biggest since 1996 and according to the Danish federation “clearly the strongest team of Danish swimmers ever seen at an Olympics.”
