Biography

Helena Blach Lavrsen is Denmark's all-time best curler. Starting out her international career as a teenager in 1979, she competed until 1998. In this period, she was involved in both of Denmark's international titles (as of 2009), the 1982 World title and the 1994 European title. Between 1983 and 1998, she served as the skip of the Danish team, collecting four European and four World Championship medals, as well as an Olympic silver medal in 1998. The latter medal was won after the women on her rink decided to become Denmark's first Winter Olympic medalists after hearing the sport gained Olympic status (Lavrsen competed in the 1988 and 1992 demonstration competitions as well). In 1997-98, the team reached consecutive finals at the Europeans, Olympics and World Championships, although they lost all three of them. Between 1979 and 1998, Lavrsen also won 15 Danish titles with Hvidovre CC. Blach Lavrsen is married to Lasse Lavrsen, who was third on the Danish men's team for about a decade.
