HERNING, Denmark, September 16. WITH less than three months to go until the 2013 European Short Course Championships held in Herning, Denmark, the meet organizers are working diligently to ensure that people will get "an experience they will always remember, " when the championships start on Dec. 12.

This will be the first time that Denmark will have hosted a championship event of this scale, with 600 of Europe's best swimmers expected to participate and more than 16, 000 spectators in sum for finals throughout four days of competition.

Jyske Bank BoxenAt the annual Aqua Clinic in Brondby, Sept. 5-7, event manager Jacob Staun presented plans and status of a promising, but also tightly-scheduled, event.

Having inspected host venue, the Jyske Bank Boxen, on Sept. 4, the European Federation (LEN) representative was impressed with what he saw and the plans the Danes have for the event itself as well as other extracurricular activities surrounding the meet.

"I leave with a good feeling in my stomach, " LEN managing director Marco Birri said. "My expectations were already high, but now they are even higher."

The primary concern with what looks to be a smoothly-planned and executed event is the time for the pool setup. Myrtha Pool would like to have six days to set up the pools, but will only get four in Herning because Depeche Mode has already scheduled a concert at the Boxen arena on Nov. 29. The filling of the pools is expected to take 36 hours, so construction crews will now be working round the clock in three shifts to have the pools ready in time. The entire project entitled "To Fill The Box With Water" is expected to take approximately eight days before the European teams arrive for the final days of preparation ahead of the event start on Dec. 12.

The deconstruction of the facility will have to be as speedy after the conclusion of the championships on Dec. 15. The venue will host the annual Danish Sport Gala on Jan. 4 and the European men's handball championships from Jan. 12-26, 2014.

Higher income

by MrsSassyKorean

We have higher incomes based on pooling our money together to help one another just like the West Indians, Africans and East Indians. We value a college education like these same groups. This is nothing extraordinary. We help one another when it comes to starting a business. We stick together. This is why Koreans have a hold on the wig/hair weave industry. I am not proud of that aspect of our culture anymore than the high rate of alcoholism.
I do not think what is of God should be grossly distorted or deformed to appease an European beauty aesthetic. So Koreans profiting on the demeaning culture of black women wearing fake hair instead of loving and cherishing their own God blessed hair is not moral
