2. Pal Joensen- Ok, even i admit this is kind of a longshot. Earlier this season, I mentioned offhand the exploits of this Faroese distance swimmer. A couple of years ago he was a European Junior Champion. He comes from an island nation of 40,000 people that until recently didn’t have roads between towns. Still, they had pools and Pal Joensen is a legit talent. This past year, he made the move to civilization and has begun training in Denmark. At the Danish open last week, he recorded times of 3:48, 7:54 and 15:02. None of those times will be good enough to medal this summer. Still, would you go full bore at a meet like that when you are guaranteed to be your country’s only rep at World Champs this summer? I’m banking that he didn’t, and this summer I’ll be cheering for a Faroese cinderella story in the mile.
