Sport: Borch is looking for participation in his third Summer Games. It requires him to comply in Switzerland.

On Sunday, he got off to a good start in the competitions in single sculls. In the qualification, Borch left the competitors behind and clocked in at 6.56.22. It was enough to win the heat in front of sharp-shooting rivals from Italy and Poland, among others.

The top four went directly to Monday’s quarter-finals.

Norway has already qualified four boats for this year’s Olympics/Paralympics: Women’s double sculls, men’s double sculls, men’s lightweight double sculls and women’s single sculls (Paralympics).

Alongside Borch, another Norwegian boat is looking for an Olympic ticket in Lucerne this weekend. It is the double four for men with Erik Solbakken, Kristoffer Brun, Jonas Juel and Oskar Helvig. They row qualification later on Sunday.
