Danish Viking Warrior Mascot For European Short Course Championships

At the 2012 LEN European Short Course Championships in Chartres, France athletes such as Rikke Moller Petersen, Lotte Friis, Jeanette Ottesen Gray and Viktor Bromer lead the Danish team to a second place finish in the medal standings. The Danes finished with 12 medals (6 gold, 4 silver and 2 bronze) with only the French finishing outdoing them with 29 medals (12 gold, 6 silver and 11 bronze).

This year the Danes hope to improve their results on home soil as the event is being held in Herning, Denmark from December 12th-15th.

Earlier this week the meet organizers announced that Denmark would not only be represented by their star athletes, but that the competitions mascot would be a Danish Viking warrior.

The viking, who is still without a name, has been created in the spirit that the swimmers are just as tough as a real viking.

The official announcement can be found on the competition website
