Arnarson Named Iceland's Sportsman Of The Year

Jan 21, 1999

Orn Arnarson was recently selected sportsman of the year by Iceland's sports journalists. He is youngest Icelander to receive that honor.

To celebrate he competed the day after on his grandfathers birthday and gave him a birthday gift. Three new Icelandic Short Course Records!

He started by swimming 400m freestyle in 3:53.50, 35 minutes later he swam 400m backstroke in 4:27.00 and 15 minutes later swam the 50m freestyle in 23.29.
