Schippers feels after ‘superlange night’ fresh 200 metres

Dafne Schippers on Tuesday, had an excellent start to the 200 metres, after Monday was tired of her bronze world CHAMPIONSHIP-race at 100 meters, and everything that followed.

“My body feels good again,” said Schippers, who her series won in a time of 22,63. “I’ve relaxed walk and a lot of energy spared for the semi-finals and the final. Good that that could.”

Important for the 25-year-old Skippers, who titelverdedigster is on the 200 metres, was happy that they have a good night’s sleep had in the run-up to her first 200 metres in the Olympic Stadium in London. After the 100 metres was quite different.

“After that race I didn’t sleep well. That is actually always so because there is a lot of energy in my body. I wanted to rest, but that was not an option.”

The Dutch was Sunday evening also very late in bed. “Around a quarter past one at night I was just ready with the doping control. Then I had to eat and so I was all in all only an hour or three in my bed. And then it took me a while before my brain was.”

Because of the bad night did Skippers the Monday easy. “Yesterday I’ve hardly done anything and then a superlange night. Therefore I’m fully recovered. I look forward to the semi-finals.”

The semi-finals are Thursday night at the program. Friday night at 22.50 hours (Dutch time) is the final and hopes Skippers her world title to continue.
