They call it “Ã“lavsÃ¸kusvimjingin”, the 400 meter swim along the main pier of TÃ³rshavn, right after the traditional boat races on our national holiday Ã“lavsÃ¸ka. Me and Bartal had planned to film it in a relay fashion, one guy filming while the other moved to a new position along the route. Turned out to be an intense run through spectators, rain and large puddles, following this guy Magnus while trying not to become a part of the swim ourselves. Winner time Magnus JÃ¡kupsson, 4:43.0, here receiving a special prize for all his accomplishments at the European Juniors and Danish Championships this summer. Video will be ready later.
