Date of birth


Philip Due Schmidt was born in Copenhagen on 10th February 1997. His brother and father were inline skaters, and instead of joining the football team, Philip followed in their footsteps. At 13 he stepped on the ice after being inspired by his older brother in combination with an ISU development programme. Since that moment, he has been competing in international competitions ever since.

In 2012 he represented Denmark and carried the flag at the Youth Olympic Games. He came 14th in the 3.000m and 17th in the Mass Start.

Specialising in the Mass Start, Philip also competes in the Team Pursuit together with his brother. In the 2022/2023 season, they successfully qualified for the World Championships!
