Zonderland will be almost recovered from back pain after a fall on a Play

Epke zonderland will be thinking just after the new year, fully recovered from his fall at the rekstokfinale of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“It’s going well,” says turner Thursday at the Univé Gym Gala 2016 against NUsport. “My back is still slightly stiffer, but I come on a higher level. I leave certain elements on the high bar look like, that I dare not yet.”

Zonderland will be expected after the turn of the year again all of the exercises on the high bar to be able to do. “In the new year I’m going to build. I am, however, of all the complaints from the fall.”

Or the turner is also in action at the Olympic Games of 2020 in Tokyo, he knows himself yet. Zonderland will be “can’t say right now” whether he will be present, but “I will certainly not stop”. “Hopefully I can do that for a while. I am, however, realistic. I need to see how long I can sustain it, preferably in Tokyo.”

Van Gelder and zonderland will be: ‘2016 was not just bad’

Van Gelder

Yuri van Gelder is after the sporting debacle on the Play back in full training. The turner by chef de mission Maurits Hendriks was dismissed after inappropriate behaviour, just want to look forward to.

“I compare myself with a Bulgarian turner of 39 years, who at the Olympic Games in London and even in the ringenfinale was. That is my example. I still have a number of good years to go.”
