    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. 
  11. Wow!

    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!

    Schulting is also out due to COVID. At the previous world championships she won 5 gold medals which she now cannot defend. 
     
    With Fontana also out , I assume it will be between Choi and Boutin in front of her home crowd on the women’s side?

    Sadly no Nadine Visser, no Anouk Vetter and no Emma Oosterwegel. I think Visser and Oosterwegel are injured and Vetter chose a shorter indoor season. Femke Bol, Liemarvin Bonevacia and the 400m relays are probaby the highlights! I'm curious what Sedney and Schilder will bring in their events.

    Angel Daleman is turning 15 this month and will still be a junior when the 2026 Olympics are happening. 
     
    She's also by far the biggest Dutch talent in long-track speed skating. Last month, she won the Junior B championships (15/16 years as of 01/07/2021) over 500m, 1.000m, 1.500m and 3.000m (), while she is still a C-junior (13/14 years as of 01/07/2021). Of course that means she is also the B-junior national sprint champion and national alround champion (by 3.5 points, an amazing gap you almost never see). 
     
     
    Right now she's combining both sports, but we'll have to see if she decides to focus on one.

    Danila Semerikov (part of a Dutch team) had some interesting clothes during the open Dutch marathon championships in Sweden this weekend  According to himself, those are just his normal clothes...
     

     
    Meanwhile in beautiful (for now) Baselga, Davide Ghiotto set the 10k track record at 13:25 minutes Saturday. That had been held at 13:38 by Bart Veldkamp, who with that race almost managed to take the European allround title from Dmitry Shepel in 2001  Good times
