Jeroen D’Hoedt Sunday in the Park of Laeken third national title conquered. It was for D’Beware the first time that he is the tricolour should receive for the short cross. D’Hoedt took it after an exciting sprint with Also Oussama Lonneux.
“I was a little surprised by the rapid start-up of Pierre-Antoine Balhan”, opened D’Hoedt, who last week in Rotselaar for the first time this season, a short cross lost, afterwards. “I have the first round calm. During the first descent, I have taken the initiative and we are returned to with Balhan. That went uphill a little bit longer, but together with Philip Cortvriendt, I am able to return. In the spurt began Oussama Lonneux from far away, so I could well prepare for the jump. I think we have a pretty spectacle. I am happy with my first title in the short cross.”
D’Hoedt takes about three weeks to participate in the Ekiden in Ghent. In april last he has an internship in the United States, in order to prepare for the European qualifications for the 3,000 m steeple. His first steeple, he walks on 3 of may in Stanford.
