Afterwards The Crown Prince said:
“It is a marvelous area that Svendborg is located in – both hilly and bumpy. This mountain bike track, which is more or less, a single track, is a technical track, but it is also a fast track in many ways. Since I am a triathlete myself and since I think it is great that a world championship is coming to Denmark it felt very
natural for me to become a patron for this ITU-event on the island of Fyn.”
The Crown Prince tested the challenging track through the landscape in the South of Fyn accompanied by
several other event ambassadors of 2018 Fyn Multisport World Championships Festival, among others the
President of the Danish Triathlon Federation, Mads Freund:
“A World Championship is, of course, the largest event one can host. Then in five disciplines. We are very
proud. It is very a big thing to host such an event, but we have received incredible support from Sport Event Denmark and Sport Event Fyn. It is a collective effort that has been performed by the best mainstay in Denmark,” says Mads Freund.
