Not sure. I think he sadly injured himself during the holidays (judging by a photo on Instagram where he uses crutches).


No idea about how serious it is though.

"International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) Executive Committee members have voted in favour of proposing four-woman bobsleigh for Winter Olympic inclusion at Beijing 2022 but the body's President Ivo Ferriani has made it clear he would prefer a female monobob event."

Goddamit, no to both. At least for 2022. For crying out loud, both of them don't even have a World Cup series yet.

Belgium and the Netherlands will form one team from now on, with Tom De La Hunty as head coach, and a German starting coach. Curious how that's gonna work out :p

The first option, as far as I know they'll still compete as BEL and as NED. Mostly it'll be Belgian women and Dutch men forming one team (not on-track). "That way, the men can help us carry the heavy sled, every little bit helps", according to Elfje Willemsen :p
