Pirates named champions
Aalborg Pirates has been crowned as Danish champions in men’s ice hockey after a 5-1 victory over the owners Rungsted Seier Capital in the fifth match in the final to win 4-1 – the club’s fourth Danish title in history and third since 2018. Herning Blue Fox remains the most successful team in Denmark with 16 titles, but none since 2012. In fact, Pirates and Seier Capital have since 2018 alternated as champions.

The handball talent is dead
Danish handball is in shock and grief after the news of the 19-year-old talent Matthias Birkkjær Pedersen’s sudden death. The Bjerringbro-Silkeborg U19 player had four matches for the first team at Bjerringbro-Silkeborg and has previously been called up to several Danish youth teams. He was to switch to Lemvig-Thyborøn next season.

The Super League goes down to the thread
The Danish Superliga is ready for an exciting end in the coming weeks, after FC Copenhagen on Sunday fell to a surprising defeat to Randers at home. With a match in hand, FC Midtjylland is six points left and meets FCK at home in the next round, so can potentially catch up on all lost ground with a victory there. FC Copenhagen, however, has a markedly better goal difference, so FCM must hope that the Lions lose additional points in the few matches left.

Ehlers commits to Worlds
When Denmark launches its IIHF World Championship campaign in May, they can count on one of their best players to lace up in Finland. Winnipeg Jets winger Nikolaj Ehlers has confirmed that he will participate in the tournament for the first time in years – his Jets have missed the NHL playoffs for the first time since 2017. A further Ehlers link to Denmark is coach Heinz Ehlers, who is the father of the 26-year-old speedster.

Magz in the points again
The Danish driver Kevin Magnussen has continued his successful return to F1 by once again getting among the points – this time at the Emilia Romagna GP in Italy. Magnussen finished the race in ninth place and secured two points for his team Haas. The 29-year-old is now in 10th place in the F1 position with 15 points. Max Verstappen from Red Bull Racing won the race ahead of teammate Sergio Perez.

Lives up to its billing
The Danish international Philip Billing has been named in the season’s English championship team after a solid campaign for AFC Bournemouth. So far, the 25-year-old has scored eight goals and seven assists in 36 games. The former Huddersfield man has two international caps for Denmark. Bournemouth are currently in second place in the Championship and are on track to win promotion to the Premier League next season.

Rune breaks the top 70
Denmark’s best men’s tennis player Holger Rune is now ranked number 70 on the ATP rankings – the highest ranking so far in his flourishing career. Rune improved on the rankings after beating the Chilean world’s # 30 Cristian Garin on his way to reaching the last 16 of the Serbia Open. The Dane, who turns 19 on April 29, also recently lost a close match to world No. 7 Casper Ruud in the 32-part finals of the ATP Masters in Monte Carlo.

Mahfoud retains the title
After a pandemic-related break of over two years, Sarah Mahfoud finally returned to boxing by retaining her IBF world title. Mahfoud won a unanimous decision against the German fighter Nina Meinke 97-93, 97-93 and 96-94 according to the judges’ cards. Mahfoud remains unbeaten in 11 matches as a professional.
