I remember hearing that the reason why these Dutch are great speedskaters, is because the canals used to freeze and they would skate on them to get around.

The mass in the canals is small enough to freeze at lower temps than for eks. Peblinge lake.

I don't think Denmark will ever be a winter olympics nation, but I find it weird that we are sooooo bad at winter sports when flat countries around us have more success. Even countries that are warm.

Goes to show how much we could use some mountains here in Denmark.
