Denmark selects 4 to Barcelona 2013 World Championships squad


The Danish Swimming Federation has announced their preliminary selection for the 2013 World Swimming Championships in Barcelona, to be the four individually qualified Jeanette Ottesen Gray, Lotte Friis, Mie Østergaard Nielsen and Rikke Møller Pedersen, plus Pernille Blume selected for the women’s 4×100 freestyle relay. The final selection has to wait partly because two swimmers have been granted dispensation, to try to qualify at a meet in the US on 11-13 April 2013. My best guess is that that would be the 2013 Arena Grand Prix at Mesa, where Anders Lie Nielsen is competing. See
