An OK start to our Barcelona 2013 participation


Phew, Poula Øssursdóttir Mohr set a new Faroese record this morning, clocking 1:04.58 and 41th of 53 in the women’s 100 meter butterfly here in the prelims of the FINA 2013 World Championships in Barcelona. Her record was 1:05.92 from the Mare Nostrum meet in Barcelona in June, so it was a nice big improvement of that, and a good start to our competitions here.

As you can imagine, we have been busy with settling in here in Barcelona, these past few days. Issues with internet connection etcetera, and maybe also a bit of pre-game nerves. But now with the meet ongoing, I promise to be better! :-)
