H.K.H. Kronprinsen is the patron of Fynske Bank Multisport World Championships Festival
We are incredibly proud and honoured to have HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark as the patron of Fynske Bank Multisport World Championships Festival.
The Crown Prince has all his life had a close relation to sports and excercise. In 2013 the Crown Prince became the first ever royal Ironman when he completed the KMD IRONMAN Copenhagen on danish home turf. Furthermore the Crown Prince is a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) who works on developing the olympics and international sport.
In relation to the The Crown Prince’s patronage the event partners invited The Crown Prince to test drive the cross course. Afterwards The Crown Prince said:
“It is a marvelous area that Svendborg is located in - both hilly and bumpy. This mountainbike track, which is more or less, a single track, is a technical track, but it is also a fast track in many ways, so you have got both sides. Since I am a triathlete myself, and since I think it is great that a world championship is actually coming to Denmark, it felt very natural for me to become a patron for this ITU event on the island of Fyn.”
CEO of Sport Event Denmark, Lars Lundov adds:
“It is a great honor and terrific for this large triathlon event that the Crown Prince has accepted the patronage. The Crown Prince himself has tried his strength in triathlon and he is a great patron for sports on all levels, both nationally and internationally.”
