Ones to watch
Mark Peters (3.5) is a military man who found the sport through the Invictus Games, captaining his country and then became the poster-boy for the sport in Denmark. It’s sometimes difficult to tell Mark and his team captain Leon Jorgensen apart as they both wear the same colour headband.
Route to the 2023 European Championship
March 2022 Wheelchair Rugby European Championship, Paris.
Denmark hosted the European Championships in Vjele, in 2019, where they beat France in the semi-finals to qualify for their first ever Paralympic Games. Here, they shocked the rugby world by beating reigning Paralympic Champions, Australia in their first pool game.
Vjele was also host to the World Championships in 2022, where Denmark again beat France, this time at the newly introduced quarter final stage, before finishing 4th in the Tournament as the highest placed European team.
