Pernille Blume is a 22-year-old Danish Olympic swimmer, who specializes in freestyle events. She made her Olympic debut at the 2012 Games in London, but she returned home empty-handed. Pernille competed in five events, and her best finish was sixth place in the 4 x 100 meter freestyle. She also raced in the 50 meter freestyle, the 100 meter freestyle, the 200 meter freestyle, and the 4 x 100 meter medley.
Pernille would get sweet vengeance at the 2016 Summer Olympics, bringing home gold in the 50 meter freestyle and bronze in the 4 x 100 meter medley. She edged out Simone Manuel for gold by just two-hundredths of a second in a highly entertaining, nail-biter of a race. Pernille didn’t medal in the 100 meter freestyle or the 4 x 100 meter freestyle, but she still had herself a damn impressive Olympics.
