Congratulations to Rowing Ireland’s High Performance Director, Morten Espersen, who last week received an honorary award from the National Olympic Committee and Sports Confederation of Denmark (DIF).
At a reception held at Bagsvaerd Rowing Club, Morten’s home club, President of the Danish Sports Federation, Niels Nygaard, presented Morten with a pin in honour of his work in the area of rowing. The basis of the presentation was Morten’s 10 year presidency of the Danish Rowing Federation and his long outstanding commitment to sports in Denmark, in particular rowing.
Morten is seen as a great inspiration to everyone involved in Danish Rowing. He was a key driving force behind the upgrade of the Danish Rowing Stadium, he helped to develop Danish HP crews over two decades and has many coaching & athlete achievements.
Rowing Ireland extends congratulations to Morten on this great achievement.
