Last Thursday evening Crown Princess Mary attended the Wonderful Copenhagen Challenge 2007, a swimming meet in Øbro Swimming Centre, Østerbro in Copenhagen. Mary is the patron of the Danish Swimming Federation, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Australian Eamon Sullivan won the 50 metre sprint and Australian Karina Leane came second in her event.

Politiken reports the challenge was a sprint race with a competitive field. A feature of the Challenge was yet another showdown between Swedish star Stefan Nystrand and the Australian Eamon Sullivan in one of a series of FINA World Cup races in Europe in the lead up to the World Cup in Berlin this weekend.
