In an almost empty swimming arena in Vejle, Denmark, Anton Ipsen
managed to finish the 800m free event in the time 7:52.26, clearing
the time requirement of 7:54.31 needed to qualify for the 2021
Olympics in Tokyo.
Anton was originally qualified for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, but
when these were postponed due to COVID-19, he needed to re-qualify.
Anton also holds the Danish national record of 7:48.74 from the
2019 World Championships in 800m free and is ranked 7th in the world
in that discipline.
We caught up with Anton to check in on his Olympic dreams.
