4×400 meter

Ghafoor, who was also previously on the 4×100 metres ran, had less success in the 4×400 metres. The netherlands finished last in the heat due to a faulty switch where the stick fell to the ground. This could be done in the remainder of the race is no longer offset.

Eventually gave the error at the first exchange disqualification for the Netherlands, because Ghafoor according to the rules themselves, the baton would have had to pick up the still to pass Into the White. Now it was The White that picked it up and went.

Laura White and Eva Hovenkamp were the other runners for the Dutch team, which are pre-thought, a good chance to be a finalist.

“The baton slipped out of my hand when I wanted him to surrender,” said Ghafoor after aflioop. “It is me never happened and now it happens at a world cup. Really pussy, because we have such a good team.”

With a time of 14,32 seconds recorded Sintnicolaas the seventh time in the 110 meter hurdles. Thus he did better than his compatriot Pieter Braun, who was good for the fifteenth time with 14,67.

Braun was better at the discus throw. The 24-year-old Dutchman explained to a distance of 42,95 meters, and thus became seventeenth on the part. Sintnicolaas got no further than the 22nd of distance (40,25).

With three parts for the bow – pole-vaulting, javelin and the 1500 metres – is Braun on the sixteenth place of the tienkampklassement.
