Kneigt said he was completely surprised when De Laet didn’t appear on the ice to comfort him. De Laat saw Emons fall and believes she has not been tapped yet. However, that was the case. De Laat chose to go to Emons to take advantage, when that had already happened and he should have been prepared to take a push from Knegt. Kneigt analyzed the NOS: “I wanted to push Itzig, but there was no itzig.”

To continue: , if you want to act at this level, you have to practice one sequence and not always put a different sequence on the ice. Then try this, then this… It should be a machine and now it’s not a machine. With a permanent team you can compete for trophies, but I don’t remember driving like that. This does not belong to this level. a point.”

The reaction of the national coach Nils Kersholt
National coach Nils Kerstolt agreed with the criticism of Sjinkie Knegt, who stated that there were too few mechanics in the team. “Something went wrong. We need to watch this video together. We need to watch this video together,” he said. Kersholt thinks Knegt has a point when he says such mistakes could be avoided if only one team was used: “He might have a point there, but I also have to try new things and give New opportunities for young people,” said the Dutch national team coach, who is yet to enjoy the fact that the women have qualified for the final. “You end up with the relay guys and that stays. This is always a weakness.”

The late Yitzhak

Ithzak de Lat basically put his hand in his lap: ‘Get out of this building as fast as you can?’ Yes, and if there’s a door in the way, I’ll kick it all the way,” said the short tracker, looking a little frustrated. I was disappointed. It had never happened to me like this in ten years. “I was completely blown away when I saw Cinque driving into the corner of my eye,” said de Lat, who also heard Kneigt’s criticism. “I realized I had made a big mistake.”

“No plan? Well, we’ve had one in the last five or six years Fixed Relay where everyone was so in tune with each other. We have never exchanged like this year. In the past, the tasks were clearer and we got along better with each other, but I mainly blame myself for this.

Slot driver Van ‘t Wout then protested due to being fouled by his Chinese rival, but that did not result in an adjustment of the score, so that the final B game would remain for the Orange. , I was a little moved, because the Chinese put his hand in front of me. That was just an arm block, or I’m crazy. But the jury saw it differently. It’s stupid for it to end like this. We were number one and I looked away for a moment and then suddenly we were number three. It was chaos. We are very strong, but it just doesn’t work.”
