World champion Kjeld Nuis finishes 6th in the 1500m and misses out on the World Cups. Koen Verweij came back from training in Russia and took the win with a big margin.

quite surprising results, I'd say...:yikes:

 

p.s. am I the only one who has some "unhortodox" thoughts about Verweij's "hidden" training "over there"? :whistle:

No :p 

 

Erben Wennemars (former top class sprinter and nowadays analyst on Dutch TV) has been rather furious about Verweij going to Russia. Nuis judged him for it, but well, Nuis is 6th and Verweij won, so yeah :d 

 

I laughed at the interviewer's question after the win: "Did you do anything different there?" :evil:

Thijsje Oenema has been spotted in Heerenveen, watching the races. Very good news, since she retired because of rather serious cancer which definitely wasn't sure if it could be cured. She looked pretty healthy :) (don't know if she actually is, but it was good to see her there)

this looks some good news...

I really hope she's on her full recovery path...

 

p.s. they also showed Marianne Timmer on the stands...nowadays she looks even more beautiful than in her racing times...:wub:

If you do have time to check the results now and then (or the interest in doing so :d ), they're between pages 850-856:

https://nos.nl/teletekst#856

 

856 is the one that has the live results of the distance that's going on at that time :p

yeah, I know NOS Teletext has always all results...;)

I was used to take advantage of that when I was able to see (don't ask me how :whistle::lol:) the main Dutch TV channels on the satellite (I'm talking of the 2004-2007 period, the golden age of sat tv emulators, when almost all european networks were up for grabs for tv "pirates")...:lol:
