WTOC 2016: Denmark



Without the charismatic Maria Krog Schulz, but reinforcing the commitment to the youth - with Karoline Schulz Saxtorph doing her debut in the World Championships - Denmark did what was expected. Søren Saxtorph reached the PreO podium in the Paralympic class, in what was his fifth presence on the big stage in the last eight editions of the Championships. Johanne Bieiring reached the TempO Final, after missing her presence by a narrow margin in the last World Championships.

+ More than the 6th place of Søren Saxtorph in the PreO competition, Paralympic class, we would mention Johanne Biering's 25th place in the TempO final. The result may seem not as good as that but this was the first presence ever of a Danish athlete in the TempO Final and it deserves to be highlighted.

- The modest performances of the Paralympic athletes Jahn Petersen and Bjørn Jørgensen Vognbjerg, particularly in the TrailO Relay competition, preventing Denmark of reaching the podium.
