Odense, the city of fairytales and Hans Christian Andersen, hosted the Duathlon on July 6, and the Elite Men’s World Champion, Andreas Schilling, could not have been happier to pull off such an amazing feat on home turf, being a Danish native: “It was amazing! Every 10 meters, there was a person I know, cheering for me - so I just got a major boost every time. It’s so amazing to win the gold medal on home soil!”
