Danish swimmer Matthias Gydesen officially invited to the Olympics


The Danish Swimming Federation announced today that Mathias Gydesen has received the official invitation from FINA to compete at the London Olympics, expected as he was only 1 hundredth of a second from qualifying back in March.

Gydesen comments:

‘Of course I am relieved that the final decision has arrived, even though I saw it as a statistical trifle. I was and am still glad that the Danish Swimming Federation and the Sports Confederation of Denmark showed me faith back in april. Because of this, I have now the best opportunities to perform at the Olympics.’

The Danish Olympic squad is hereby complete:

Swimmers: Lotte Friis, Jeanette Ottesen, Rikke Møller Pedersen, Pernille Blume, Mie Østergaard Nielsen, Mads Glæsner, Mathias Gydesen, Daniel Skaaning, Anders Lie and Pál Joensen.

Coaches: Paulus Wildeboer (national coach), Bas Jan Stam (assistant coach), Jón Bjarnason (Faroe Islands, team coach)
