Coach Bennema thinks that Fisherman must choose between hurdles and combined events

Coach Bart Bennema thinks that Nadine Visser on EK’s and WK’s are no longer in both the pentathlon and decathlon, as in the-meter hurdles in action. He says that his pupil must choose between the two parts to connection to can find the absolute top.

The 22-year-old Fisherman had a successful world CHAMPIONSHIPS in London last weekend with a seventh place in the pentathlon and decathlon and Saturday seventh place in the final of the 100 metres hurdles.

“I was curious how full the tank would still be sitting in that hordenfinale and that was not completely full anymore,” says Bennema, that Visser saw the finish 12,83. “If they are not already the internet had turned, she had more walk in the final.”

“Making choices is so very important in the future. You can use the ‘double’ not every tournament will continue to do so, even though they’re very nice on both parts. Mentally it is very heavy.”

The conversation about the choice between hurdles and combined events run Bennema and Visser longer. “Two years ago, she was still not doing that, but now it is. Nadine wants to be more than a seventh, and then you must choose one item.”

Incidentally, wants Bennema in London still not answer the question of which part preferably has, but he tells that a Fisherman coming year, more hurdles will work out.

“We are training now for something more on the internet and that will in the future something more on the hurdles. That will continue until the combined events next year, in may in Götzis. Then Nadine make a choice, because next year at the european CHAMPIONSHIPS in Berlin she can be the components do not combine.”


The situation of fishermen is similar to that of Dafne Schippers, the former pupil of Bennema. Schippers, who, now under the American Rana Reider trains, performed for many years as uhuru, but chose in the 2015 final for the sprint, and was this world cup for the second time world champion in the 200 meters.

“Nadine is also very good, but if they are also world’s top players can be should appear,” says Bennema. “I’m not going to say them anyway, world CHAMPIONSHIP medals going to grab. But I do hope they will next year have a choice where they are completely behind and where they are completely on focus. And then the rack is still not there.”
