Eskild Balschmidt Ebbesen (born May 27, 1972, in Silkeborg, Midtjylland) is a Danish lightweight rower, who has won a total number of five Olympic medals (three gold) and six World Championship gold medals.
Ebbesen and his crew took an alternative approach to racing and is quoted saying : "Our strategy, for every race, was always to be first, to be number one from the beginning of the race. A fast start was important. It became natural for us to do a high stroke rate. It then escalated. I don't think we have many strokes under 40."
