How did we find Mathilde?

The summer of 2021 was the summer of the Olympics in Tokyo, and SDU shared that three students actually went to participate! All of us were so curious to know what that experience was like, which is why we contacted Mathilde. Mathilde represented Denmark for the relay, and she was happy to record an episode with us! We covered everything from how Mathilde got started with track and relay, to how stable the ever so famous cardboard beds were. It is safe to say that the hosts Franka and Navina felt starstruck when talking to Mathilde!

Give Mathilde’s episode a listen to hear all about her days in Tokyo, as part of Team Denmark!

Portrait of Mathilde

“The fundamentals of the buildings were real because it was going to be real buildings afterwards but everything in there was kind of made of paper. I think it was a really good thing for the environment, but it also made the whole experience a little bit the hard. It was hard to get some privacy because the apartments were really small and everything were made of paper so it was really loud.”
