Congratulations to Frederik, he beat his times from last year which is what athletes aim for.

Last year I followed on the link provided, this year due to computer problems I couldn't, very disappointing.

I've heard enough Danish on these boards that I can recognize that Frederik is speaking Swedish. He sounds pretty good (to me!). I'll ask my Danish and Swedish speaking friends for their opinions, please.

I speak Swedish. I lived there for a long time when I was young:

He is being polite and is attempting to speak Swedish with the occasional Danish word in between.

He sounds quite ok (with a Danish accent) but it's hard to tell how well he actually speaks it, as it's such a short interview.

He sounds better than when he was interviewed after his first 'Vasaloppet' a few years ago.

Back then I thought he should have just spoken Danish. I think most Swedes understand it pretty well.

I understand him very well and I'm not even Swedish.
