Lotte Friis & Anton Ipsen win a very wet 2013 Round Christiansborg


The Danish Swimming Federation describes in a press release tonight how a record-number of about 2000 swimmers participated in the 2013 Round Christiansborg open water event in Copenhagen today, that first was delayed 2 hours because of worries about the water quality after a sewage overflow caused by a downpour the night before, and then again 20 minutes because of a torrential downpour at the rescheduled 13:00 start. Barcelona 2013 World Championships 800 and 1500 silver winner Lotte Friis won the women’s 2K event with a time of 22:59, and compatriot Anton Ipsen the men’s event in 22:05. Friis and Ipsen also won the following 4×500 meter Krüger Relay, as part of the Sigma Swim Birkerød team, in a time of 23:47.

2013 Round Christiansborg results can be seen here on, Kruger Relay results will be available later tonight on
