Luke Kroon did not reach 400 meters freestyle. The first Dutchman to compete in the Championship finished sixth in his series, at 3.52.93, placing him at 24th place out of a total of 49 participants. For a spot on the top night, who swims for medals later in the day, Crohn was short by four seconds.
He was unsuccessful in the butterfly stroke
Maaike de Waard and Tessa Giele were unable to break the pots in the 100m butterfly stroke. De Waard is back at number two in her series, but has collapsed in the final meters. She ranked eighth and scored the fastest time in 24th position, achieving 1.00.09.
Geely was a little slower and with it 1.00.96 it again found itself 35th in the ranking after the series. Sweden’s Louise Hansen was by far the fastest in the preliminary round: 57.06.
Faith de Jong wasn’t able to rank among the top eight in the 800m freestyle. With its 8.48.02 – nearly eleven seconds slower than number eight – it had to withstand eleven competitors.
Teams following the final position
The relay brought success to the Netherlands again. The Dutch women’s national team in freestyle 4 x 100 meters (Bosch, Keira Toussaint, Marit Steinbergen and Robin Neumann) qualified for the final in the fastest time: 3.38.20. Denmark ranked second in the preliminary round, recording 3.38.88, followed by Great Britain and France.
The men have also reached the final battle. Niels Corsangi, Stan Bijnberg, Tom de Boer and Jesse Potts, who had just had to abandon Switzerland in their match series, scored the sixth-fastest time with 3.14.80. Italy, the fastest team in 21 countries, was the fastest in under two seconds.
