Mr. Juba said, “I think the conditions in Bermuda mirrored the conditions we expect in Rio, and that is what we wanted. It has been a very good exercise for us.

“The facilities have been great, the pool has been great and the staff at the National Sports Centre have also been great.”

“We are going away with a lot of good information and data, we have been looking at the difference in sleep and sleep patterns as well. We came with a group of technical experts including a Team Denmark sports scientist and psychologist.

“It has been a splendid trip, a really big plus for us, and it is a good venue for other teams. I would recommend it to anyone.”

Amy Fox, Aquatics and Fitness Manager at the Aquatics Centre, said hosting the team was “an endorsement of the hard work put into making it a top-class venue”.

Ms. Fox said, “Our facilities are getting better and better. It has been fantastic seeing his team use the pool and to hear that the team has had a very successful visit. Hopefully it will encourage other teams, in all kinds of sports, to come here to train as well.”

    Nice to hear, of how well the Aquatic Center was used by Denmark, and how much they enjoyed it. I wonder if the Aquatic Center has much use from the surrounding communities. When is it open, how extensive are its facilities, and is there a membership of sorts along with costs for use. We want caring and mature folks to enjoy such a facility please advertise….

    I wonder if we’ll ever see Dunkley deal with tough issues. Only showing up for easy photo ops like this isn’t doing the country well.
