Morten Joergensen (DEN)

2013 was a special year for Denmark's double Olympic medallist Morten Joergensen. He opened the season in Denmark's most historcally successful boat, the lightweight men's four, by taking the European Championship title. He and his crew then provided rowing fans with some of the most exciting races of the season, engaging in tightly fought battles with a fast New Zealand crew. For Joergensen and the Guldfireren ("golder four") it was a case of 'all's well that ends well' when they took gold at the 2013 World Rowing Championships in Chungju (KOR).

In this video Denmark's most successful active rower talks to World Rowing about his beginnings in rowing, recent surgery and life as elite rowers in Denmark.
