Wake-up call in Beijing: disappointment for Kampschreur after decisive race win

Wake-up call in Beijing: disappointment for Kampschreur after decisive race win

Niels de Langen, who surprisingly won the bronze medal in the super combination, had previously qualified from a distance in the giant slalom. But after the first run, the 23-year-old sit-skier was in a disappointing 15th place.

It improved significantly on the second bike and set the fourth fastest time on the field, with the Dutch eventually finishing seventh. Floris Meijer finished tenth.

“Hot Bark” for Stuut

In the standing skiers, where the peloton of giant slalom participants counted no fewer than 44 skiers, Jeffrey Stuut finished twentieth. 11th place in the Super G is the best result of the Dutchman so far. Earlier in this tournament, he finished seventeenth on the downhill and did not make it to the finish of the super combination.

“It’s really hot, my feet are burning,” said Stuut after his second run. “My hands are sweaty. I think I’ll wear a bikini later because it’s so hot. Give me an ice cold beer, because it’s summer weather.”

Stuut now has one game left to play, he will close their first game on Sunday evening with a slalom. Barbara van Bergen, who participates in the women’s giant slalom on Friday evening, narrowly missed the Super G podium earlier, fell in the combination downhill and super and did not reach the finish.
