Danish crown prince nominated as country's next IOC member

Crown Prince Frederik has been nominated to become Denmark's next International Olympic Committee member.
The 38-year-old Frederik, heir to Denmark's throne, is being lined up to replace Kai Holm, who reaches the IOC's 70-year age limit in 2009.
"The crown prince is the best card in our efforts to continue to have a Danish member on the International Olympic Committee," Denmark's national Olympic committee said Thursday.
The committee "is convinced that the crown prince would be able to open many doors for Danish sports."
IOC president Jacques Rogge supports the prince's candidacy, according to the statement.
Holm has been Denmark's IOC member since 2002.
Frederik _ an avid yachtsman, horseman and marathon runner _ will come up for membership at the IOC assembly in Copenhagen in September 2009.
The IOC currently has 114 members.
