Debate today regarding Frederik's role in the IOC

Idrætsboss om kronprinsens Rusland-støtte: Vi er ikke sure | Politik | DR
"- I think that it is over dramatized. The benefits seen with Danish eyes clearly outweigh the disadvantages, says Morten Hansen Mølholm, director of the Sports Confederation of Denmark, on the prince's role as a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

DF: Kronprinsen har overrasket positivt som IOC-medlem | BT Politik - www.bt.dk
The Crown Prince has surprised positively as IOC member

Idrætsboss: Kronprinsens Rusland-støtte er overdramatiseret - Sport
"The Prime Minister supports the crown prince during a debate in the parliament hall. - I think that the Crown Prince is a great representative for Denmark. Also in connection with his role in the IOC. He is a huge source of inspiration for young and old in relation to sport, says Løkke."

translating through google, so sorry if incorrect

Thanks, Polyesco.

A few words of explanation.

When Frederik became a member of the IOC the then government set down a committee to guide Frederik, so that what he said and did as a member of IOC did not go against the political majority in Denmark.
That committee hasn't met since 2014 BTW.

Anyway, last year the government backed by a majority in the Parliament was at least of the opinion that Russia should be banned from taking part in the Olympics due to systematic use of doping.
However, Frederik voted for Russia taking part in the Olympics. That caused a good deal of confusion at the time, but the government came out with an even more confusing statement, to put it mildly, saying that there is nothing in this.

So today a member of the Unity List, who constitute the extreme left wing of the Parliament, asked the PM for a clarification.
The PM stood by his previous somewhat confusing statement and referred to some confidential mails between the court and the government. These mails will not be published, because what is said between the government and the DRF is confidential, for obvious reasons.

So the conclusion is that one of three scenarios happened:

A) The government was unclear in conveying to Frederik what the political stand was, so he voted according to his convictions and guided by the major sports organizations in Denmark.

B) The government was clear in conveying to Frederik that he should vote no. But that Frederik willfully went against the political directions. For whatever reasons.

C) The government was clear in directing Frederik to vote yes, but he either misunderstood the directions (and so did his advisor) or simply made a mistake and put his arm up, when he shouldn't. In short: he goofed.

Now, option A is an embarrassment for the government. Especially since in put Frederik in an embarrassing situation. Of course the government isn't keen in admitting that they goofed. - So no need to publish any mails, thank you very much!

Option B is serious! In that case Frederik went way past his mandate and went directly against the political majority in the Parliament. That means Frederik has received a serious scolding by the government. And one of the duties of any government is to protect the, or rather screen, the DRF from embarrassment - also, or perhaps especially, when they goof.

Option C is either embarrassing for the government or for Frederik. Because either the message wasn't as clear as they thought. In other words: while the government's opinion may have been made clear, it may not have been clear that Frederik was instructed to vote no.
Or, Frederik was sleeping during the meeting and cast the wrong vote, which is pretty embarrassing for him. - And the government is obliged to screen the DRF when they goof...

- That was pretty clear, right?

There have been some articles on the coordination commission visit, but not much else. I guess he has to wear a neck collar to get more coverage on these meetings

Frederik will be in Lima, Peru from the 12 to the 16 for the 130th IOC Session.
H.K.H. Kronprinsen deltager i den 130th IOC Session | Kongehuset

"At Sessions, the IOC members gather to discuss and decide matters related to the Olympic Movement. These are the occasions where Olympic host cities are elected, where the sports’ programme of the Games is reviewed and where era-defining ideas, such as Olympic Agenda 2020, become reality.
In effect, an IOC Session is an annual general meeting, bringing together all of the IOC members in order to discuss the most pressing issues of the moment. Every member is obliged to attend, with more than 50% needed for a Session to be valid."
https://www.olympic.org/news/ioc-sessions-uncovered
I can see that Henri of Luxembourg will also be attending.

Reelection won't be a problem. The member selection committee (chaired by the princess royal) suggests to add 9 members and not reelect only one of those up for reelection - at the request of his family memers because of his illness.

" Crown Prince Frederik has been re-elected as a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for an eight-year period. It happened at the IOC session in Peru's capital, Lima. "It is of great value for DIF and Danish sports that the Crown Prince is so centrally placed and can help to influence the development," says Chairman of the Danish Sports Association (DIF), Niels Nygaard. If the 49-year-old throne lasts the period, time must show. It may be that the duty calls elsewhere."

"Culture Minister Mette Bock tells in a press release that she hopes that the Crown Prince's re-election may benefit Danish athletes. "We have a great ambassador for Danish sports in the Crown Prince, and I wish the Crown Prince good luck with the continued membership of the IOC."

He really is incredibly beautiful. He needs to keep the beard/scruff. It works for him.

I think it's plausible to put this here:
https://www.mx.dk/sport/sportsnyhede...m_medium=front

Those of you who are interested in tennis will know that the tennis player Caroline Wozniacki has just won a grand slam in Australia. - Her first BTW, and also the first grand slam by a Dane AFAIK.
She has of course been followed closely and been praised here in DK.

She mentioned that she has been contacted by the DRF: "I've heard from the royal family. They congratulated me and said that they are really happy on my behalf, so that's really cool".

She didn't mention who contacted (probably called) her, but it is almost certainly Frederik, with his keen interest in sports, tennis, membership of IOC and because he has met and know Caroline Wozniacki.

I had wondered if Frederick (or someone else from the DRF) would make the long trek to Melbourne for the final. Too bad it was so far away and such bad timing. With his strong ties to sports and Australia, it would have been a perfect fit.

Yes, had it been in Europe or even USA I'm sure he would have come for the finals.
