Denmark Open Finals

The Denmark Open finals was held at Odense Sports Park.

Surprisingly, not located in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.

The sports complex looks great and well kept. There's a football stadium nearby called the TRE-FOR park, home to Danish soccer clubs.

Let's say I visit Denmark during Denmark Open, any Danish people would recommend me where to visit?

My 5 days  plan in Denmark is as follows: 1 day dedicated to watching badminton in Odense, another day of exploring Odense city.  Then 2 days in Copenhagen and 1 in Aarhus.

Is 2 days in Copenhagen and 1 in Aarhus and 2 in Odense enough? Is renting a car better or just take the train?

I may visit Denmark one day and drive across the ├śresund Bridge to Malmo Sweden. My Swedish friend told me many Swedes go to Denmark for cheaper groceries and shopping.

The city of Odense is famous for the storybook writer, Hans Christian Andersen. Hence during the prize ceremony, the girl presenters wore colorful and fair-tale like costumes.

Ok back to business...

The biggest casualty in Denmark open where Lee Chong Wei lost to Brice Leverdez of France 21-17, 20-22, 21-19 in the quaterfinals.

The womens doubles was won by the reigning Olympic champions, Takahashi/Matsutomo defeated Koreans Jung/Shin in rubber game 19-21, 21-11 and 21-16.

The Thai player Tanongsak won the men's singles who beat the Korean Son Wan Ho in straight sets, 21-13, 23-21. Tanongsak carried the photo of the late Thai monarch, king Bhumibol Adulyadej during the prize ceremony as a sign of respect.

Mixed doubles won by Danish fan favorite, Christina Pedersen and Joachim Fischer 21-16, 22-20 vs a teenage Chinese pair of Zheng/Chen.

Olympic silver medalist Tan Wee Kiong/Goh V Shem won a hard fought battle against the super vocal/loud Bodin Isara/Nipitphon Phuangphuapet 14-21, 22-20 and 21-19.

The women singles won by the Japanese Akane Yamaguchi who beat Taiwanese star,Tai Tzu Ying in rubber game, 19-21,21-14 and 21-12.
