Dutch skaters conquer European gold in team pursuit after eventful week | To skate

Published

on

Last week there was still a lot to do about these three skaters, but today they had to get the job done together. Roest said he was angry about the distribution of the starting tickets for the Olympic Games, because he is not allowed to participate in the 1500 meters.

In addition, Roest denounces the ‘lack of communication’ from the skating association. Out of indignation, he threatened to miss the team pursuit on Friday. On Wednesday he announced that he would participate anyway so as not to abandon his teammates and sponsors and because there is a title to defend. Roest did not blame his teammates, however. “Let’s say that this is absolutely nothing personal towards Sven Kramer or Marcel Bosker. Of course those guys want to ride, we all want that.”

team sprint

Later Friday evening, the 3000 meters for the women and the 1000 meters for the men are also on the program. Earlier in the evening, the Polish women won gold in the team sprint ahead of Belarus and Norway. On behalf of the Netherlands, Femke Kok, Michelle de Jong and Marijke Groenewoud would take action on this part, but Kok and De Jong suffer from muscle problems and skipped the stage.

The European Distance Championships is the last international tournament before the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing (4-20 February) start. In two weeks, the national sprint and all-round championships are still on the program in Heerenveen.

Russian skaters in quarantine

The Russian skaters are missing from Thialf on Friday, because of a number of corona cases, the team from Russia has been quarantined in a hotel for a few days. Based on the PCR tests that will be taken on Friday, it should be clear whether the Russians will appear on the ice of Thialf on Saturday and Sunday.

Olga Fatkolina, Angelina Golikova and Natalia Voronina are among the European Championship selection. As a precaution, the Russians had decided to keep the sprinters Pavel Kulizhnikov, Ruslan Murashov and Artem Arefyev, among others, at home, so as not to take any risks with a view to the Olympic Games in Beijing.

We believe that we should break something based on this information. The technical staff, led by René Kolmschot and supported by the group of players, will do everything they can to achieve enforcement. We think Frank is a professional, and we owe him a lot of thanks for the past four seasons.
