Mie Ø Nielsen‘s lead off swim in the women’s 4 x 100 medley relay was the top performance of the final two days of the Danish Open. Nielsen, who did not swim the individual event on Sunday, posted a 59.19 in the relay event on Saturday evening. The time would have been her best of the season before the European Swimming Championships in May where she set a new national record winning the event in a time of 58.73.
Nielsen’s time currently ranks second in the world to Australian Emily Seebohm‘s 58.34.
Two of Nielsen’s Danish Olympic teammates won events on Saturday evening. Viktor Bromer took the men’s 200 butterfly in a time of 1:56.92. Bromer finished almost six seconds ahead of the field, but was still off his season’s best of 1:55.28, which he put up at the European Championships.
Daniel Skanning won the men’s 800 freestyle in a time of 8:20.35. Unlike Bromer he did not have such an easy time with his competition. Skanning finished less than a second ahead of Marcus Køyer Svendsen who hit the wall in a time of 8:21.05.
