The former topschaatster Marianne Timmer, before her own career took off, three hours in vain waiting for a signature from her jeugdidool Yvonne van Gennip. Van Gennip was Creating be asked to wait a moment but it turned out to deliver on its promise to be forgotten, says Construction on Thursday in a interview with the Volkskrant newspaper.
“Every time a Race came to skate at my home track in Groningen in the netherlands, I volunteered as a volunteer,” said the winner of three Olympic gold schaatsmedailles in 1998, in Nagano prefecture, and the third was held in Turin in 2006. “I would, for example, cubes in the ice-skating rink. I just wanted to touch her, talk to her. I have a signature that asks, when she got to her dressing room, and walked in. She said, “Yes, stay here, but just you wait.” Three hours later I was still there. Yvonne, it was, of course, forget it.”
According to the Construction there was the incident, and a subsequent friendship with the winner of three gold schaatsmedailles at the Olympic Games in 1988 in Calgary, alberta, canada, not in the way, “I forgive her. Yvonne is now one of my best friends. If they are not on a journey, it is said to be a couple of times a week to have a chat.”
