Occasionally here on the Swim Brief, I like to bring your attention to the very important work done by the Faroese swimming blog, www.svimjing.com. It has a lot of good stuff. Unfortunately, there are probably upwards of 50,000 people in the entire world who speak Faroese, so much of it's content is lost to the abyss. This will not be one of those times.
In a post today, svimjing excerpts an interview with recent world champion Jeanette Ottesen. It is interesting from the perspective that Ottesen talks about how far swimming falls behind the most popular Danish sports (soccer, handball and then everything else. Often in America we assume that swimming is so much more important somewhere else. Turns out that the only other place is probably Australia.
Oh, and Ottesen is marrying an American named Bobby Gray. They are honeymooning in Venezuela. That is all.
