Skating association KNSB has presented a new calendar in consultation with the skaters. The season starts on October 30 with the Daikin NK distances. In the old format, they would not be held until the end of December.
Today the skating association announced the new calendar for the first half of the season. Those national tournaments and one World Cup qualification are on that calendar. Sven Kramer responds enthusiastically.
“I am very happy, it is good for skating. Unfortunately the bubble with the World Cups did not continue, but now we are starting with the national championships. Also great competitions.”
For the time being, the tournaments are taking place without an audience. “One of the measures we have to do with,” says Kramer. He is especially happy that there will be skating again.
“It is nice to see that there is now togetherness under pressure and that everyone is aware that it is important to stand up for the sport,” said Kramer. “It’s great that we remain in the picture as a sport.”
Remy de Wit, technical director of the skating union, explains why this calendar was chosen. “It is very important to us that we have good competitions. We have a large number of skaters in the Netherlands who are among the best in the world.”
