BALLERUP, Denmark, February 28. JEANETTE Ottesen threw down a swift 50-meter freestyle finale in the East-Regional Danish Long Course Championships today, matching her Danish record in the event from the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona.

Ottesen clocked a time of 24.54 in the 50-meter free jumping to second in the early world rankings behind only Cate Campbell’s blistering 24.21 from Perth in January.

According to European correspondent Rokur Jakupsstovu, the Danish Regional Long Course Championships are held in Odense (West) and Ballerup (East) this weekend, as lead-up to the Danish Open 2014 / Berlin 2014 Trials in Bellahøj (Copenhagen), late March.

Ottesen also won the 50-meter fly going away with a 25.62, the top time in the world this year ahead of Brittany Elmslie’s 26.14 from Sydney.
