Service & support
This is the sixth time the games are held but never before have there been so many participants. What is new this year is that staff from Grundfos’ purchased companies will participate.
- It will be a unique opportunity for staff to meet for sports and being together. In addition to the sports activities, our foreign colleagues will meet their Danish colleagues as they will be lodged at the homes of Danish hosts, said Kim Nøhr Skibsted, Vice President, Corporate Communications.
The participants will arrive during Thursday 2 June and in the evening of that day there will be a magnificent opening ceremony with a really Olympic opening procession outside the Grundfos Centre. The citizens of Bjerringbro are invited to attend this ceremony. On Sunday 5 June the participants will leave Bjerringbro for home.
- The topic of this event is sustainability and so every effort is made to make the games as environmentally friendly as possible. For instance, there are t-shirts made of recycled plastic bottles, electric cars will be used and an Olympic forest will be planted to contribute to the reduction of carbon emission, Mr Skibsted said.
The largest tent in Denmark
The largest tent ever put up in Bjerringbro and Denmark will be the venue of the Grand Finale Party on Saturday evening 4 June, at which the participants, after the hardships of the past days on the sports arenas, will party until the small hours of the morning.
-This party will be both happy and sad, for it is also a farewell party, as the foreign participants are going home on Sunday, leaving an overwhelming sense of emptiness in the large number of Danish officials, helpers and committee members who have been fully occupied with Grundfos Olympics for weeks or, for some of them, even months.
