Ingeborg Vassbakk Løyning (21 years old, Oslo Idrettslag Svømming) is also not competing due to a broken hand ahead of the WC.
However, all three are in training again with a view to the European Championship which will be held August 11-21 in Rome.
As there are two major championships this summer, the three participating swimmers have prioritized the European Championship in terms of training.
However, it is expected that everyone is well prepared for the World Cup in Budapest.
Henrik Christiansen is the one of the three swimmers who has the greatest chance of a final.

Stup – June 26-July 3.
This year we have two strong cards that will plunge both failure and tower exercises in the WC for seniors.
Caroline Kupka (18 years, Bergen Diving Club).
FINA research fellow Caroline has been selected for the failure exercises 1 meter and 3 meters.
The Bergen girl who has plunged well in 2022 delivered some incredible series during the Bergen Open in 2022.
What will be the world’s largest international competition this year also had the FINA referee school in place, which made the judging hard, strict and fair.
Nevertheless, the 18-year-old succeeded in setting a new Norwegian record of 3 meters.
Considering the even dive and that she is not that far from the Swedes big dives Emilie Garip, we are looking forward to the World Cup!
This will be Caroline’s first World Cup for seniors.
Helle Tuxen (20 years, Penguin Diving Club).
The sun girl who has lived in the USA for the last two years, where she studies and trains, reached the NCAA final at all heights.
Many good results in almost all competitions for the school in the 2021/2022 season.
Helle has become a “veteran” even though she is only 20 years old and has participated in both the World Cup and the World Cup before.
Helle has been taken out to all three heights, but it is 10 meters that is her strongest exercise.
Espen Gilje Bergslien (mobile 9268 3731) goes as a coach, and with him he has a former national team coach for Norway and sports manager for the British diving national team Kim White.
Together, the two will lay the foundation for the best possible results during the WC, and EC later this summer.
