Daniel gave an interview to swedish news agency TT in Falun today.
"Prince Daniel pays tribute to the volunteers"
Prince Daniel is a member of the local organizing committee for the World Ski Championships in Falun. Many have testified his strong commitment to the World Championships. Now, Prince Daniel looks back on a successful event.
- My biggest impression are all volunteers who have set up and worked voluntarily. We often talk about the athletes' actions and the work of the waxing team, but without the volunteers' work there would not have been any contests. Now we've got to be part of an event that exceeded all expectations. In addition, it has sold more tickets than many dared to dream. Of course, I also remember Charlotte Kalla and Johan Olsson's glorious race. It was great to see them.
Now the question is, can the Ski World Cup inspire other major sporting events to be organized in Sweden?
- We are a nation that will focus on major events. At the same time, I know there are different views on what the society should spend money on. But when a major event, such as the Nordic World Ski Championships, works and it becomes a huge success, I believe that the event means a lot to the community.
This week Daniel listened to a lecture by Sebastian Coe, who led the London Olympics in 2012.
- It was an interesting lecturw. He spoke about national pride at how the Olympics had been implemented which then had a positive impact in the country. He said that after the Olympics, London has evolved for the better. This Nordic World Ski Championships have created a pride in Falun, Dalarna and throughout Sweden. We can benefit from this in the future.
