The Danes like sports – as participants, spectators and in front of the television. Almost two million actively participate in sports as members of an association. Almost two thirds of all children and young people are engaged in organised sports in their leisure time.

Football is the national sport of Denmark. Other strong Danish disciplines, for instance at the Olympics, include women’s handball, yachting, rowing, swimming, cycling and badminton. Danish handball teams have won numerous medals both in Denmark and abroad.
