Ambassador of Denmark

Thank you for inviting me to speak to you today. It’s a real pleasure to meet you all. I have been to this grand old parliament on many occasions, but it’s always a great honour to be invited to speak here, as it is a great joy to be in the UK altogether. It has been a special privilege to be in London this year to see the grand spectacle of the Olympics. Rarely have I seen a city so wholeheartedly embrace a sporting event and rally behind their athletes. As a small country, Denmark couldn’t quite compete with the astonishing British medal tally, but we were still proud to take home 9 medals at the Olympics and 5 at the Paralympics.
