Rasmus Pedersen, a member of Denmark’s world-record breaking team, believes Team GB are no longer the dominant force they once were.
“They had a big leap for a while with their equipment but everyone has caught up with that now,” Pedersen said last month.
“That makes the physical side more prominent and I think GB has lacked a bit of that in their training, maybe they’ve slipped a bit because they’ve always been the best.
“But they still have a strong team. If you look back to Rio, the World Championships before was won by Australia and when it came to the Olympics, GB smashed everyone.”
