Denmark

 

Denmark is a relative newcomer to the international scene, they’ve only been to two World Championships, but they continue to improve and finished an impressive sixth at the 2014 World Championships. Don’t be surprised if the ninth-ranked Danes upset one of the higher seeds and make a statement ahead of Sydney.
