Dec '11
Each year, the award 'BESTSELLER's Olympic Hope' is presented as part of the Olympic partnership with the Danish elite sports organization, Team Danmark. The award is given to a young, promising athlete from Denmark who has a positive attitude and has shown great potential within his/her line of sport.

The three athletes nominated to become BESTSELLER's Olympic Hope 2011 are:
• Andreas Bube, athletics
• Stine Nielsen, shooting
• Henrik Stephansen, rowing

The award
BESTSELLER wants to support the athlete both in his/her sporting and personal life. It is important for BESTSELLER to find out what the individual athlete needs in order to match the support to those needs.

The award is worth DKK 100,000 including a DKK 25,000 BESTSELLER clothes sponsorship. The support, that BESTSELLER's Olympic Hope receives, should help pave the way for him/her to fulfill his/her Olympic dreams.

The winner will be presented at the annual Danish sports awards broadcasted live on Danish television on 7 January 2012.

Winner 2010

With two Super Series quarter finals (in Denmark and Singapore), 1 senior title, 1 senior silver medal, 1 European Youth Championship title and a silver medal at the Junior World Championships, Viktor has truly amazed the badminton world.
