    Dennis got a reaction from Makedonas in Marathon Swimming at the Aquatics FINA World Championships 2022   
    Yeah, the finish was very exciting. The first 3 women finished within 1 second from each other after 10k.  
     
    My meeting at work was about to start at 10:00 and meetings with Dutch and German colleagues always start right on time., but I saw how tight the race was and the finish was at 10:03 or something like that, so I made ten people in the meeting wait for me with some stupid excuse, just so I could watch the finish.

    Finally the WC break for Sharon van Rouwendaal. As per usual,  salvaging what little is left in the marathon tournament. Happy to see her on top form on the Olympic distance again.
     
    She was a bit helped by Cunha and Beck battling it out together, but that's what can happen in a three-way race to the finish.

    Pudar into 100m Butterfly final. That's one flag in swimming I didn't expect to see in a global swimming final.
     
    Osman made the final by 0,02.

    Not too well. They finished in 22nd place with 38 points. 33 of those points came from the professional juries, whereas they only received 5 points from the televoting, all from   
     
    They had to open the show, which is often not a good position as the voting only starts after all 25 songs have been performed. By that time a lot of people had forgotten the Czech song or they only started watching the show after they had already performed.

    My personal only explanation is that they sang better in the jury session (jury votes are not based on yesterdays final, but on the test run they do one day earlier), and the public vote based on the videoclip, because the live singing yesterday I found it pretty horrible

    My issue was that I like the recorded version more than the live performance. It’s already been on my playlist for months. It’s the best outright, just not this evening.

    Carlijn Achtereekte, Olympic Champion 3.000m in 2018, has made a switch to cycling.
     
    She transferred internally from the Jumbo Visma speed skating team to the Jumbo Visma cycling team. Her first big competition will most likely be the national championships on the road next month.

    Big results at the Rotterdam Marathon today: TWO national records!
     
    Abdi Nageeye, 1st place in 2:04:56
     
     Nienke Brinkman, 2nd place in 2:22:51 in her 2nd professional marathon
     
    Brinkman is a special story. She was a field hockey player just below the national professional level, so she choose to go for a career outside of sports. As a researcher in Switzerland she started running mountainous trail runs. She ran so fast that she decided to train for a marathon, and just debuted straight into the international elite at 28 years old. And now she holds the national record!
