Berlingske first major Danish newspaper to launch Swim section


As spotted by, Denmark’s oldest newspaper Berlingske has launched a dedicated swimming sports section, as the first of the “big three” broadsheet-quality national daily newspapers, the other two being Jyllands-Posten and Politiken. It is somewhat a surprise that Berlingske beat Politiken to this honor, as Politiken with journalist Allan Nielsen for many years has dominated in reports about swimming among Danish newspapers, although not with its own dedicated section.
