Sejleren Allan Nørregaard won the OLYMPIC bronze in the 49er in 2012. Four years later, did Katja Salskov-Iversen the same in kvindevarianten 49erFX.
In the coming time, the two successful sailors in the same boat when they go together in the olympic mixklasse Nacra 17.
the Danish Sejlunions team he will play, Thomas Jacobsen, has great expectations for the nysammensatte duo.
- Katja and Allan is in many ways an obvious match. It is two verdensklassesejlere, who have shown that they can perform when the pressure is allerstørst.
- And they have also shown promising bars in their pre-workouts. Therefore, it is a constellation, there is a high degree of worth to test, and I expect that they will relatively quickly be able to sail up on an international level, says Thomas Jacobsen in a press release.
Allan Nørregaard was in 2016 at the OLYMPICS in Rio de Janeiro in the Nacra 17. Here he sailed to a 12.-with his erstwhile sidekick, Anette Viborg Andreasen.
Now he tries, then, with Katja Salskov-Iversen. Preliminary cooperation must be tested towards the european championships in may. If all goes well, the bet continue with the OLYMPICS about a year and a half as the major benchmark.
already, Denmark has a Nacra 17-the crew of the international class in the form of Lin Ea Cenholt and Peter Lübeck, which last year won EM-bronze and became number four at the WORLD cup.
