On Wednesday evening, the Athletics Federation announced the dispatch of a team of 36 athletes to participate in the World Athletics Championships. Liemarvin Bonevacia also receives a start-up permit.
The tournament takes place from July 15-24 in Eugene, USA. Twenty athletes will reach an odd number. The other sixteen are part of the relay teams.
Bonevacia did not meet the 400m limit, but the Olympic qualifier still earned a starting point based on his position in the world rankings.
This also applies to Nick Smedt and Angela Ramsey in the 400m hurdles, Zoe Sidney in the 100m hurdles, Bent Koenig in throwing, Rutger Kopillar in pole vaulting and Denzel Kominentia in hammer throw.
Sivan Hasan has not run a single race yet this year, but he can compete as a defending champion in the 1500 and 10,000 metres. It’s also high enough in the world rankings for a starting ticket at 5000 metres. She also combined these three distances at the Olympic Games in Tokyo last year, which led to her receiving two gold and one bronze medals. It is not yet clear how far she will travel in Eugene.
World Athletics Championships for the first time in the United States
The World Athletics Championships will be held in the United States for the first time, and the IAAF World Athletics Federation is expecting two thousand participants from two hundred countries. A number of Dutch athletes will participate in the Diamond League competition in Stockholm on Thursday and then travel to Irvine, where the athletics federation has set up a training camp.
Fimc Ball is a huge asset to a medal in the 400m hurdles. Furthermore, Leakey Claver (400m), Evelyn Salberg (400m), Tony van Diepen (800), Maureen Koster (5000), Mino Flon (pole vault), Görend van Klinken (shooting and discus), Jessica Schilder. (shot shot), Nadine Visser (100 hurdles), Anouk Vetter, Emma Ostrogel (both heptathlons) and Abdi Nagy (marathon) qualified individually by reaching the World Cup limit.
