Good first day for Denmark. A bronze medal and Danish junior record for Daniel Steen Andersen in the 50 fly, and then our men’s 4×100 free relay team managed to break the Danish senior record, which was the other survivor from the European championships of ’87. Unluckily they just missed the bronze by 0.06 seconds, but a fantastic performance nonetheless.

Some seriously impressive times from Solntseva – the next big rival for Ruta in the making? I think we’ll be hearing more of her in the years to come.
