Pal Joensen Shines at Meet in Faroe Islands

KLAKSVIK, Faroe Islands, November 3. PAL Joensen was at it once again at the Faroe Islands as he continues to put the tiny country on the swimming map. During a short course meters meet held in Klaksvik, Joensen competed in the 400 and 1500 freestyle events, while using the rest of the meet as a warm up and warm down since there is only one pool in the location.

Joensen posted a time of 14:48.40 to win the 1500 free, less than 10 seconds off his national record time of 14:39.99. He also nearly claimed his 400 free record with a time of 3:44.18. That swim came up about a second and a half shy of his top time of 3:42.57.

He also won the 100 free (51.89), 200 free (1:59.33), 100 fly (1:02.82) and 400 IM (5:13.30).
