Swimmers Who Trained In Bermuda Win Bronze

August 18, 2016

Following their training in Bermuda earlier this year, the Danish National Swim Team has seen four of its female members take bronze in the 4 x 100 Medley at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Along with two other team members who did not train in Bermuda, Denmark’s Mie Nielsen and Rikke Møller Pedersen claimed the impressive standing by finishing the event with a time of 3:55.01.

The United States took the gold medal with a time of 3:53:13, while Australia took silver with a time of 3:55:00.

Regarding the team’s island training, a Swim Swam report previously said, “Eight of the top Danish swimmers including Lotte Friis, Mie Ø Nielsen, Rikke Moller Pedersen, Viktor Bromer, Pal Joensen, Mads Glaesner, Daniel Skanning and Magnus Westermann will be spending the next 15 days training in Bermuda.

“Bermuda was chosen as the destination for the camp for two main reasons; the climate and the time zone.

“The temperature and humidity in Bermuda in January will be similar to that in Rio in August and the time zones are also relatively similar with Bermuda being two hours behind Rio.”
