This is weird! I thought Frederik took part in a continous 24 hour mountainbike race, but Jyske Vestkysten writes that is has now been announced that Frederik takes part in Jels Triathlon, also know as Royal Oak Triathlon: jv.dk - Nyheder - Vejen - HKH Kronprins Frederik deltager i Jels-triathlon lige nu
(This link is continously updated and you will now find several pics of Frederik).

Jels, where this is taking place is located in Southern Jutland.

The organisers say that for safety reasons Frederik's participation has not been made public until today. - So the mountain bike thing was a decoy?

Anyway, he and 300 others started at 10.00. 1½ hour ago.
They start out by swimming 2 kilometres, then 88 KM on bike, before they end with a 21 KM run.

Niels Rasmussen from Jels Triatlon says: "We are immensely proud that Crown Prince Frederik has chosen to take part in our Triathlon. The DRF has asked Danish Trithlon Association which triathlon Crown Prince Frederik could take part and they referred to us. We are very proud of that".

--

Interesting! I'll have some more look around...

ADDED: There is no confirmation on the DRF site. The mountainbike race should end in fifteen minutes, as this is written.
If this is confirmed, and I think it will, then half the Danish presscorps is looking for Frederik some 250 KM away...

ANOTHER CONFIRMATION: TV2, regional TV Syd, also writes that Frederik is taking part in the half ironman right now. http://www.tvsyd.dk/artikel/203359:K...ironman-i-Jels. The first over the fnishing line is expected around 14.00 - in little more than two hours from now. Frederik they expect will finnish between 14.30-15.30.

VISUAL CONFIRMATION: Here is Frederik: http://www.jv.dk/artikel/1582053:Vej...ige-nu?image=3

And we have the results: Styrt, medalje og halv ironman: Her er konge-familiens yderst aktive weekend - Royale | www.bt.dk

Frederik completed the 2 KM swim, 88 KM on bike and 21 KM on the feet in 5 hours 1 minute and 10 secs landing him in place #47, out of 285.

Yesterday he completed 15 KM on bike through terrain in 51 minutes.

A big pic: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...6/6522429-.jpg

He was also on the news tonight at 19.00 on TV2, just as he crossed the finishing line - (in contrast to so many professional athletes who seem to be out of breath when giving interviews hours later!) Frederik was actually able to say a few words on the spot and only being slightly out of breath.

He said in a long interview to Jyske Vestkysten, that he had time to enjoy the scenery - only because the headwind was so heavy, that slowed him down and while having to tread harder, he admired the landscape...
He also said that he may go through another half ironman next year.
The reason why he chose to go here at Jels, was simply because of his schedule.

Huge respect to Frederik! This requires a lot of training, willpower and good condition. Not to forget his mountain bike race yesterday. He's a cool man!

I guess Mary and the children have got a pretty tired husband/daddy home this evening

An interesting article from Politiken.dk about why it was a secret that Frederik participated in The Jels Triathlon

Kronprins Frederik har lavet en hemmelig halv jernmand i Jels - Politiken.dk

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #25, 2013.
Kronprins med kræfter - Crown Prince with strength.
Written by our sports-reporter Malan Vincent Joensen.

As you know Frederik was on the legs most of the weekend. Taking part in the Specialized Nordic24 run on Saturday, where he was a part of a six man team called The Lefties, after a part on a cycle called a lefty.
Frederik went as number two in the team and completed his fifteen KM course in very decent 51 minutes.
Before starting he said: "I signed up this year because it's a good race". He would have liked to have taken part in the race last year, but: "A Chinese statevisit dropped by and then the race had to yield".
About the race he said: "It's good, it's healthy, it's fun and it's cool".

When Frederik had finished, there was a minor congestion and that's why he fell with his bike in front of the cameras.

But the very next day it was off to Jutland, where Frederik took part in a half ironman, starting at 10.00. Here he finished at place 47 out of 285, in the time 5 hours, 1 minute and 10 seconds. He said afterwards: "It's been a huge experience for me. I'm pretty pleased with the result I got today. My goal had been to get to the finishing line and complete it.
During training I could tell that things had to go very wrong if I shouldn't be able to finish about this time.
The biggest opponent today, was definitely the headwind on the bicycle ride. But it's been a huge experience and I think it's a very beautiful area".
Frederik has been training through the winter and spring.

I'm amazed to learn that several members, who are otherwise very keen to study pics of Frederik - (Polyesco among others spring to mind...) neverheless failed to notice that Frederik on Sunday wore his monogramme on the sleeves while cycling. Complete with crown and all.

---------

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #25, 2013.
Mine børn skal være aktive - My children must be active.
Written by Karina Didriksen.

Frederik started the School-Olympics at Østerbro Stadium in Copenhagen, where 2.000 fourth graders from all over DK competed.
Frederik said when he opened the whole show: "I can look forward to having a really fun time. You must cheer the runners and you must cultivate friendships with the pupils from the other schools. That's what the Olympics is all about - friendship and respect".

To our reporter Frederik said: "It's good to be active and it's proven physiological and socially that you benefit a lot from physical activity.
Obviously it's easier for my wife (formal word) and I because we are both active and spend a lot of time training and being outside.
We of course encourage our children to be active without pacing them, but on the other hand they often see Mary and I put on the running clothes and that we can tell stirs something in them, somehow. That'll pay off alright in a few years, so that they themselves feel like running along".

Frederik strolled around and looked at the various activities surrounded by a possey of fourth graders.

Both Christian and Bella seems already to be some active and energetic children with good control over their body movements. It does matter a lot what you see when you grow up. And I'm sure that little Vincent and Josephine will follow them in some years. They have the best teachers

I hope and believe that Isabella next year will run in the Free From Bullying run too. And in a few years perhaps the entire foursome.

And wrapping up Frederk opening the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition in Aarhus about a month ago: Halv million så på skulpturer ved havet - Kultur - Aarhus

It is estimated that about half a million visited the exhibition. As you can access the exhibition freely and from many directions, it can only be an estimate.
That is equivalent to the numbers visiting the other two exhibitions. - I.e about 10 % of the population of DK.

The sale is going pretty well too, so I guess the artists feel happy as well.

I think it will be safe to say that Sculpture by the Sea is here to stay. - Another successful Australian export.
