Pál Joensen on training camp in Australia


Sigh, while we local residents of the Faroe Islands are suffering from the seasonal rain (starting in May and ending in April), Pál Joensen has travelled to […grumble…] Gold Coast, Queensland, to train under the legendary Denis Cotterell, coach of Grant Hackett and now Jordan Harrison. Pál comments from Australia: “It is going very well, here. We are training extremely hard, almost every session, and working a lot on technique.”


To put it in perspective, here are my kids having fun last Saturday, balancing on a slippery PVC tube a few meters up during our annual ‘summer’ trip with the IT company I work at. You have to respect Pál for being able to adapt from this, to seemingly enjoy posing outdoors in budgie smugglers in subtropical Australia :-P
