So far, Danish badminton duo Maiken Fruergaard and Sara Thygesen fell to the Australians before the quarterfinals, sharpshooters Steffen Olsen and Anna Skade Nielsen bowed out of the 10 meter rifle for teams after the first qualifying round. Despite a strong showing, Danish table tennis star Jonathan Groth was beaten in straight sets in the third round of competition (his best Olympic showing to date).
Thanks to TV2, here’s what to watch the rest of today to support Denmark (get your tiny Dannebrog ready to wave). Hopes for a second Danish medal in Tokyo 2020 rest with Cathrine Dufour, Carina Cassøe Krüth and Nanna Merrald, the dressage team.
