Jeanette Ottesen, Lotte Friis, Rikke Møller Pedersen, Mie Ø Nielsen and Viktor Bromer were selected today by the Danish athletics association DFI in co-operation with the national swimming association Dansk Svømmeunion.

“All five swimmers are among the elite and have delivered results at the European Championships and World Championships over the past year,” said Lars Green Bach, the sporting director of Dansk Svømmeunion.

“We know that the Olympic Games always offer close races, but we also know that the swimmers have the potential to make an impact in the finals.”
