Óli Mortensen grabs gold (and silver) in Reykjavík


The Icelandic are staging their annual Reykjavík International this weekend, that since its beginning in 1989 has attracted many a fine swimmer like Alexander Dale Oen (NOR), Therese Alshammar (SWE), Martina Moravcová (CZE) and Pál Joensen (FAR). The Faroese delegation counts only one swimmer this year, but that is okay, since he (Óli Mortensen, 1996) has managed to win gold in the 400 (4:06.44) and silver in the 1500 (16:09.16). Long course, of course. Two more Faroese junior records to his belt.
