The tweets coming from this symposium are very interesting:


"Physical activity: Going from nothing to something decreases all cause mortality risk."


"Later life exercise reduces cancer recurrence & mortality:it's never too late to start!"

Online article from BB


"Crown Prince Frederik held personal speech"

From the article:

The prize for talented young researchers, which was awarded for the first time this year, is named after Professor Bengt Saltin, who died in September 2014 and was one of the most recognized researchers into the effects of physical activity.

Crown Prince Frederik during his speech talked about his own encounters with the man for whom the prize is named.

"I actually met and had some good times with Saltin in 2002 and especially in 2004 when he was in north-western Greenland on his way to carry out field studies ... And I would love to have kept him company for longer if not for the fact that just at that time I was about to marry."

Now that's an interesting piece of information. We might well conclude that Saltin made a significant impression on the Crown Prince, given that Frederik has attached his support to so many initiatives which encourage the population to exercise, including becoming a member of the IOC Sport for All Commission.
