Cyclist Harry Lavrysen is seeking his third gold medal, which he hopes to retrieve on Sunday. Athlete Sivan Hassan hopes to add another gold medal to her total after the gold and bronze. At first glance, they are the two top contenders for Olympic medals in Tokyo. But there is more. metro Like every day, list all the Dutch athletes in Tokyo and their starting times.
Dutch Olympic Games programme, August 7
11 pm: Marathon (women)
Andrea Delstra and Jill Holtermann run the Olympic Classic for 42 kilometers and 195 metres. They start Dutch time on Friday.
fact: The area where the Olympic marathons are held is experiencing a heat wave. So the women’s start was given for one hour. Because temperatures are expected to rise in Tokyo, the organization has moved this system to Sapporo, where the climate is usually milder. The temperature is expected to reach around 33 degrees in Sapporo on Saturday, although the women’s marathon will start early. Andrea Delstra made an ingenious hat in which she could put ice cream. At beverage stations, Dutch athletes are given nylon socks with ice, which they can put around their necks.
12:30 am: golf (women)
Anne Van Dam, Singles Day 4 (Closing).
fact: After two mediocre days, Van Damme put in a good performance in the third round of the Olympic golf tournament. She only needed 69 strokes, two short of the track average. Van Damme climbed to 55th in the general classification. Those are four better places than they were after day two, but still in the back of the field.

Mattis Boschley and Harry Lavrysen, Keren.
fact: Shanne Braspennincx showed the quick men in orange how to finish the Kirin cycle: with gold. Boschley and Lavriesen already had a gold medal in their pocket.
