Also on Friday, August 3, there are a lot of Belgians in action on the European Play. In addition to the baanwielrenners and the gymnasts for the first time the swimmers in action. An overview.
Jolien D’hoore starts today its european CHAMPIONSHIP in the scratch. “I row that discipline is really warming to what rhythm to do,” she says. I’m not going to look at that rash. It really is a lottery.” The scratch race is an individual race of 10 kilometers on the piste. Who, after 40 laps, first across the finish, wins. Often the race is decided in the final sprint but also an escape is possible. At the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Apeldoorn at the beginning of this year, she won silver, after the Dutch Kirsten Wild, “But the main objective is to ploegkoers with Lotte Kopecky Tuesday. Here we go for the gold.”
When the men drive Lyndsay De Vylder tonight the scratch. In the qualifications of the team pursuit convert the women (Stupid, Kopecky, Croket and Bossuyt) 4’31’147 the sixth time in the ten participating countries. Today they battle against Russia and they still have a slight chance at the bronze. The men (De Ketele, Ghys, De Vylder and Weemaes) ended up with 4’00”022 seventh (out of twelve) and are in the same situation as the women.
Tokyo 2020 begins today in Glasgow. With that the four topafspraak in mind include the nation’s elitezwemmers travelled to the european CHAMPIONSHIPS in the Scottish metropolis. Without Pieter Timmers, uitziekend of meningitis, loses this delegation are sporting and media showcase.
At the european CHAMPIONSHIPS of 2014 and 2016 took Belgium with the aflossingsploegen men, three medals, but there will be this edition will be no sequel to come. Individually hope Kimberly Buys and Louis Croenen in the near of the stage to come.
