Who’s that Girl?

Katrine Jensen

Who's that Girl? She's the Danish born Doll from Denmark, Katrine Jensen.

I had time to talk with Katrine this past weekend at The Viking National Championships in Villa Park, IL. She attended the event with her superstar boyfriend Pro Champion, Niels Feijen who won the event.

Born in Roskilde Denmark, this 27-year-old beauty is the oldest of three children and is a credited Marketing Economist. She is currently in the states for the next month and will be playing at The Super Billiards Expo in Valley Forge, PA.

Katrine has been playing pool since she was 17 years old, while working at a local pool hall as she attended school. She has been playing seriously for the past 4 years with a score of titles under her belt. From 1997 to the present, she has achieved various bronze, gold and silver awards in 8-ball, 9-ball and straight pool. Her most esteemed awards include The 2002-03 bronze medal from the Nordic Championships in 9-Ball, The 2003 Ladies Danish Championships in both straight pool Elite and 8-Ball Elite. This qualified her for the European Championship in Poland.

The Danish Federation elected her Player of the Year in both 2003 and 2004.

2004 brought a series of title wins for Katrine.

She won the Danish Championship for the second time in a row at Straight pool. In Prague in March, she won the silver medal in team competition; this was the second best team in Europe. She placed 3rd in The Dutch Straight Pool Championships and 5th in the Dutch 9 Ball Championship and 3rd in the Danish 8 Ball Championship including a silver medal in the Danish 9 Ball Championships and 2nd in the Big Ball Tournament in Weert, Holland.

Her goals are for serious practice and training. She hopes to qualify for play in upcoming WPBA events and find a sponsor so she can compete on a regular basis. She states that “Her strong side is always to practice” and she always tries to stay composed with her game. In addition she loves the challenge.

In her spare time she enjoys swimming, jogging and spending time with Niels.

Katrine promises to be a serious upcoming contender and she is one to keep your eye on in the coming years.

AZBilliards is proud to be one of her sponsors for the upcoming Super Billiards Expo.
