I am truly impressed!! What an achievement. I cannot even begin to comprehend how such a feat is possible but, congratulations to the entire family!! Training for it must have been hard, too!! I loved the pictures and video: thanks to all those who posted!!

I love the pictures of Frederick blowing kisses to his wife and children. Lovely!

I am just in amazement and awe. Ironman events are the most taxing and toughest sporting events in the World and for Fredrick to not only complete, but also finish w/what sounds like a really respectable finish time wise, and....Just beyond impressed. Good on Frederick and Congratulations!!

I think you're absolutely right. This is the frontpage of Danish newspaper B.T. today "King for a day."

As you may have noticed BT kept an eye on Marie's hairdresser, Dennis Knudsen's performance as well.
He finished about half an hour before Frederik, in 10 hours 16 minutes..

Even though Dennis Knudsen seems somewhat vain in my eyes, that is nevertheless an impressive result, not least considering that he turned 50 a few months and used his face to soften a tumble from his bike recently. So respect to him as well. - And perhaps Frederik will beat him at the next ironman, because without being a prophet I'll predict Frederik will do an ironman/ironprince again. He has got blood on his teeth now. (DK idiom).

I understand our Australian friends have a more keen interest and respect for the performance of athletes, more than we perhaps do here in DK. As such Frederik's achievement has hit the Australian news: Mary's Ironman: Frederik completes triathlon
Alas, they appear to have got the continent wrong... Oh well, there's a nice pic of Mary and the kids.

indeed it tuns out that at Mont Tremblant, in la belle province this past weekend, the North American version of the Danish (European?) Ironman was also run, cycled, swum. An Australian finished first, but clearly confusion reigns downunder Well done, Crown Prince Frederik!

Who knows? perhaps Frederik will do an ironman in Canada some time? He will have to do it before he become a king, by then he will have little time to train so intensely.

Or she is supporting him...litterally! Judging from Frederik's look it seems more likely that he was ready to unscrew his legs and mail them home.

A 27 pic gallery from BT of Frederik during the ironman, submitted by the readers. Se læsernes billeder: Her smiler Frederik til Maria på ruten | www.bt.dk

Notice the PET guy on bicylcle following Frederik during the marathon. He's on foot in pic #25.

That's how it looks to me as well. Frederik seemed to need the good care of his supporting wife to make it home.

I agree, in the interview he looks exhausted yet proud.

Not that I didn't have respect for Frederik before, but my level of respect for him has gone up several notches. As a runner I know how difficult a marathon is, much less a full Ironman. WOW! Months upon months upon months of training. And he looked to be in excellent running form at the end, which is amazing. Way to go Frederik! You ROCK in my book!
And I'm sure that he would have liked nothing better than to unscrew is legs and hand them to anyone. The next day probably is worse I'm sure. Lots of pain reducers and vitamin water for sure.

thanks.

It must have been a little bit harder knowing that a lot people were watching and some waiting for him to fail or not finish. or a great motivation.

You are welcome.

No, Frederik was at work for at least part of the day. Doing a lot of standing up.
Today Frederik is Regent until he leaves for USA, also today I believe.

However, this forenoon there was a public audience and that means Frederik had to stand up and recieve quite a number of people for a couple of hours or so.
One lady on the news at 19.00 explained that he seemed to be tripping a little. She congratulated him BTW on the Ironman.

PR wise this event has been a big success for Frederik. Even the tabloid Ekstra Bladet, that usually use every opportunity possible to critisise the DRF, praise Frederik. And as mentioned before, Frederik got several minutes on prime time news today. (I'll leave it to others to summarize what was said).

Im surprised he got the energy to get up in the morning. I would be zoned out, lol.

So Joachim is regent starting today as well. does that mean, that the moment Frederik is in the air, Joachim becomes regent?
