Relays 4×400 meters
The World Indoor Championships traditionally ended with a 4x400m relay, with the main contribution of the Netherlands, continuing from 2021. Orange was a worldwide hit last year with leading shows in Europe and globally. Both teams easily qualified for the final of the series on Sunday morning.
In the evening Isaiah Boers and Joachim Dober were ‘transferred’ to new forces Daimir Burnett and Terence Accord. Burnett started, Schmidt finished second again, Accord was now third and the final touch was back to Van Diepen. Experienced Belgians topped the table with 3.06.52 points, beating Spain by 3.06.82 points and ‘Our Boys’ by 3.06.90 points.
With the absence of currently injured captains Limerick Bonnevacia and Ramsay Angela, the unique big team could go even faster at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene this summer, where they want to be as good again as they were at the Silver Olympics. Medal in Tokyo, or maybe even better. The men also said it was in the mixed zone. Debutant Burnett is happy with his change in the 400-meter run. At training camp I talked to Laurent Mewley a lot and it became clear that we could compete for medals. I’m happy with my bottom, this is a great team.
Nick Schmidt spoke about an exciting event during the race. ‘Of course we are happy with the bronze, but at the same time it is a bit bitter. It was so confusing. ‘ Accord started very quickly. ‘To meet the need, you have to do. Breaking you down in the end is in the game. We have a piece, then you count. ‘ Tony von Dipon is a perfect finisher.
Femke was included in the women’s final at the expense of Andrea Bauma. League Clover went into his fifth (!) Weekend start, an incredible fact, as he crossed the line first. Evelyn Salberg has now made her ‘real introduction’ as she describes herself. Lisanne de Witte limited the damage, after which Femke Bol ran straight from four to two. ‘Don’t add that five times four hundred meters,’ Clover laughs. “But the truth is, we train very hard and can do it later.”
Last year, Salberg saw what it meant to participate in a competition. ‘I’m there now, and that too at the World Cup.’ Lisane was surprisingly ahead of the start. ‘In my opinion I started out very hard. But, I finally thought I could get them back, thankfully I got very close, so Femke was able to finish it. He had passed it carefully with Mevli before. “He told me to calm down. When the first three finally left, I was patient using the opportunity I got.
Both teams individually expressed their appreciation and tribute to Joachim Dober, Isaiah Browers and Andrea Boma, who were strategically strong and highly valued for their performance. After all, with five or six people you are stronger than four. The Netherlands plays a decisive role in the 4×400 meter relay world; It was the only country to win two medals in Belgrade, where both teams made their debut at the World Indoor Championships.
