Frederik has got some heat here in DK by left wing politicians and opinion makers, including the Villemann woman for basically repeating the official statement from IOC regarding the Russian athletes.
The decision as the whether the Russian athletes could take place in the Olympics was left in the hands of the individual associations they belong to, in regards to what they take part in.

Frederik repeated that and said it was the right decision.

- He could hardly say anything else, while at the same time remaining loyal to IOC and neutral in regards to the major decisions in the IOC.

But here in the Danish duck-pond that has by some been seen as controversial and not neutral and Frederik as an a-political royal should have dodged the question. - Apparently ignoring the fact that saying nothing is also a statement...
It is as we all know, easy to say what someone else should have said...

But it seems like the press and opinion makers, not for the first time is out of sync with the general public, because a recent survey has shown that 44 % think Frederik should run for a second term as IOC member, while some 34 % don't.

Left wing politicians, opinion makers and the Vileman (misspell intended) woman... As usual.

The final decision re the Russia athletes was made by IOC Executive Committee, Review Panel and CAS (Sports Court).

The individual IOC members had no part in the decision, whatever their personal opinion.

It appears obvious that the statement that Cr Pr Frederik made was the standard line decided By the IOC for there members. As IOC members can hardly walk outside;- meeting the press and all saying different things.
Ms Villeman should understand this as she claims she was once a reporter. As Nordic says no individual IOC members had taken part in the decision.
Therefore IOC members when confronted by the press then had a standard line to say, instead saying no comment.
Ms Villeman loves to make mountains out of molehills. Loves to attack when there is no reason to attack.

I've decided to place a summary of this interview here, rather than in the Rio-thread, because this is more about Frederik, the sports enthusiast, rather than Frederik, the IOC member and DRF representative at Rio.

Summary of interview in Biled Bladet #34, 2016.
Interviewed by our sports-reporter, Ulrik Ulriksen.

(The difference between formal and informal you will here follow the same rules as in Danish: With a capital Y when it's formal You, and lower case when it's informal you).

If I understand it correctly DK has had a record in medal-wins at this Olympic. As a result of a determined policy of supporting the best talents, rather than a more loose support of all contestant.

Frederik sure is pretty pleased with the athletes and the results! It's been a fantastic olympics as he puts it.

Q: You seem very much on, when You watch sports, but perhaps in particular on, when You watch the national handball team, which You have followed closely for many years. How come?
F: "I'll say that I can easily be carried away to a sports event in general. In particular when there are Danes in action and on the way up. But, well, in a handball-arena there is always a good atmosphere and then you are seized by it and of course you shout and get up on your feet when Denmark score and when they defend themselves well. It's fun to follow them.
I must confess that I hadn't put them high on my lists of expectations, but right now we can't say anything else than they have passed with flying colors. It's totally fantastic".

Q: And then there is a special rapport between You and the handball player Mikkel Hansen who is the big star of the Olympic-tournament?
F: "I've met him a number of times over the years and he is something special. He has done really well outside the arena, but also on the arena.
He has moved to Paris and play for Paris Saint Germaine and (he) has quickly picked up the French language. That's well done. You don't necessarily expect that, but it's insanely well done by him.
He's actually a pretty good ambassador for Denmark".
Frederik then goes on to praise the sailing team at length.

Q: Billed Bladet's Facebook-group has commented positively on Your dedication here during the games. What do You think about the fact that the Danes think You are cool?
F: "Well, that's nice. It's after all something that's just for the right leg for me and which I love a lot, that is sports and the sports performances. And being able to cheer the worlds perhaps best Danish athletes is important".

Q: You are good at congratulating the Danish medal-winners, but you also direct Your attention at the Danish athletes who were perhaps disappointed with themselves and disappointed others at the Olympics in Rio. Why do You put effort into that?
F: "You simply have to. Well, the countrymen who didn't live up to expectations are disappointed and down and need support. The badminton-duo with Christinna Pedersen and Kamilla Rytter Juhl were in tears after their finals. It was so close to gold and then it slipped away.
The defeat combined with physical, psychological stress and emotional outburst resulted in tears.
It's important to support as well as you can in those situations".
Frederik continue with expressing support for another athlete who went down with an illness.

DK will in 2018 host the world championships in sailing. Will Frederik be involved directly in that event?
Yes, Frederik replies. He has already been involved in the preparations. He already know personally a number of people who are involved in sailing on this level and there was so to speak a trial-run five or six years ago, when the world youth championships were held in Aarhus.
That resulted in good feedback, because the logistics were good and accomodation was hospitable as well and the sailing conditions were ideal. (The many islands, currents and straits, makes it an interesting challenge for sailsport-teams. As well as providing scenic views, camera wise).
So when the world championships are to be held in Aarhus, we can be sure to see M&F and children around.

In the end of the interview Frederik looks forward to returning to a normal life after 19-20 intense days.

thank you Muhler for the wonderful translations.
Loved Frederik response to not only supporting those who do well, but also those that are disappointed in the results.
Nice to read that he is involved in the preparations for the sailing world championships, he has been involved before in high level preparations for big events like the marathon in Copenhagen a few years ago.
And yes after some very busy weeks I bet he is glad to be back home

Frederik is now the patron for the 2018 Sailing World Championships
Kronprinsen bliver protektor: »Aarhus giver VM den bedste kulisse« - Aarhus | stiften.dk
Nyheder | H.K.H. Kronprins Frederik bliver protektor for VM i sejlsport i Aarhus

"- As a sailing nation Denmark has for decades distinguished itself among the world elite, and in Danish sports is the sailors who contributed the most Olympic medals... In Denmark, we know what it takes to take medals at big competitions and I am delighted that a Danish city now is to host one of the major championships. There is hardly any better backdrop for the World Cup in sailing than Aarhus. The city has good experience with the settlement of major international competitions, and I am pleased that the sailors from around the world in 2018 will experience the superb sailing conditions in the charming international culture, says HRH Crown Prince."

"- World Championships in sailing is a huge international event which will characterize the entire city and focus on Denmark as a sailing nation. We are therefore proud and happy that the Crown Prince, who have sailed on the Bay of Aarhus, where the World Cup will be held, has agreed to be patron, says Jacob Bundsgaard, Mayor of Aarhus and Chairman of the Presidium behind the World Cup."

Frederik is getting some moderate heat these days.

Kronprins Frederiks OL-optræden undrer professor - Indland

It all started before the Olympics, where Russia was caught doing systematic doping and cheating with test samples.
The official Danish stance, as laid out by the Ministry of Culture (and sports), was that Russia should be barred completely from the Olympics in Rio.
But as you know a kind of compromise was reached in which it was up to the various associations to decide whether individual Russian athletes under these associations should be allowed to compete.
That was what Frederik as a member of the IOC voted yes to.

In other words he seems to have gone against the Danish Parliament and government in this matter.

It gets even more interesting because the Ministry of Culture contacted the court via e-mail several times prior to the vote taking place about the governments attitude.
There are no details of what the replies from the court was. - If any at all...

The left-wing part of the opposition is out saying it's unacceptable if the Crown Prince ignore and even go against the policy formulated by the government and Parliament.
In fact when Frederik, after much debate was allowed to run as candidate for IOC, it was stipulated that he should act accordingly to the instructions given by the government.

Interestingly the very seasoned Minister for Culture, Bertel Haarder has gone out basically saying: No big deal.
The government's most important supporting party has gone out saying: If there is a problem it's the governments fault. It's the government who advise and instruct Frederik in what to do in political IOC matters. If they don't do that clear enough (read: order him what to do) the blame is on the government.

- However, If, repeat if, it turns out that Frederik actually did ignore and even go against a clear "advise" from the Ministry of Culture then I think he can forget about running for another period as an IOC member. He will instead quietly step down in order to "better concentrate on other duties".

Great to se our Crown Prince in top shape being back after his, Mary and children's Autumn vacation

And then we can so conclude: That we again again again have seen the media blowing a little accident completely out of proportion

Crown Prince Frederik was happily seen arriving to the IOC meeting today. Wearing a little neck collar. He explains with a smile that he was very fine. That it really isn't worse than on a Panodil level (the mildest analgesic you can get) and certainly not as worse as the media have tried to make it.

The Court and the Crown Prince has from the start told that the Crown Prince was fully able to attend all his official events and duties.


CP Frederik told the media:

That the pain in the two week old fracture is not unbearable.
- It is nothing but Panadols. It is on Panadol level (a mild analgesic).

The Crown Prince didn't tell in words exactly how the accident on the trampoline happened. He just said in his hardcore Frogman-style:

- Well, it hurt a little, right. But then I could walk away myself, so..."
- Did You get scared?
- No, I did not, says the Crown Prince, who in his own words, says he is very fine.

The IOC workshop continues through tomorrow for the Crown Prince, and then he has a few days before he again has official duties.

Pictures of Frederik arriving:

and an article with comments on how the neck brace is a bit loose according to an "expert", and that it probably means the fracture was not too bad

"But it tells me that the damage can not be that bad. The break must be completely stable. A slight crack that heal fine. He does look to have the excellent appearance, says Thomas Kiær."

yes, i think the "news" of his neck brace has worn off so I don't think royal reporters will be following. But hopefully we do get a photo or two

Thanks Polyesco

A pity that the DRF social media team doesn't bring anything at all from all the Crown Prince's events and meetings abroad. I'm not impressed at all with the DRF's social pages!
