Athletics: There are no seven hills running in the spring
07.16 am: The intended spring release of Zevenheuvelenloop will not occur. The organization had been hoping to be able to run the running race around Nijmegen twice this year, after Zevenheuvelenloop was canceled last year due to coronavirus measures. Since it is still not possible to apply for permission to organize an event, the organization has to abandon this plan.
The 15-kilometer running race takes place on the third Sunday in November. The 2021 edition is scheduled for November 20-21. About 40,000 runners typically participate in Zevenheuvelenloop. The current world record of 15 kilometers is set in Nijmegen for both men and women.
Short Path: Schulting starts in Dordrecht as the best player in the World Cup
07.00 am: Suzanne Schulting starts Friday as a favorite at the World Short Track Championships in Dordrecht. The 23-year-old Friesian is the title defender at Optisport Sportboulevard. Schultung won the 2019 World Cup in Sofia, last year the event was canceled due to the Coronavirus.
At the end of January, Schultung won the European title with force majeure in Poland for the third time in a row. Not all short trackers are included in Dordrecht. For example, due to restrictions imposed due to the Coronavirus, all participants from Asian countries have been lost.
Selma Botsma and Zandra Velzibor are the other two Dutchmen who are participating in the solo tournament. Sjinkie Knegt, Itzhak de Laat, and Dylan Hoogerwerf all got in among the guys. De Lat won the bronze medal in the final European Championship classification more than a month ago.
The dates for the 1500, 500 and 1000m qualifiers are scheduled for Friday.
This is the fifth time that the World Cup short track has been held in the Netherlands. The last time was in 2017 in Ahoy.

Ball has improved the Dutch 400m record four times this winter and is far ahead of the European standings for this indoor season.
