Very successful European Championship rowing for the Netherlands: seven times gold in Poznan | NOW


The Dutch team won gold seven times on the final day of the European Rowing Championships in Poznan on Sunday. The counter in Poland stopped at a total of ten medals.

The men’s doubles, with Dirk Uittenbogaard, Abe Wiersma, Tone Wieten and Koen Metsemakers, extended the European title as expected and thus took the seventh Dutch gold in Poland.

Slightly earlier in the day, the women’s quadruple (Laila Youssifou, Inge Janssen, Olivia van Rooijen and Nicole Beukers) was the best. Germany was settled in an exciting battle.

Ilse Paulis and Marieke Keijser, who were also the best at the European championships in 2018 and took silver at the World Cup last year, held Italy almost two seconds behind in the A-final of the light double sculls.

Paulis is the reigning Olympic champion in the light double sculls. She won that title in 2016 with Maaike Head, who stopped rowing after the Games in Rio de Janeiro. Since then, Paulis has formed a couple with Keijser.

Surprise Broening and Twellaar

The men four-without (Boudewijn Röell, Jan van der Bij, Nelson Ritsema and Sander de Graaf) took gold by being more than two seconds faster than Italy.

The women four-without also won the final. Ymkje Clevering, Veronique Meester, Karolien Florijn and Ellen Hogerwerf had a lead of more than five seconds on the Italian boat on the line and thus extended their European title.

Melvin Twellaar and Stef Broenink surprised by winning the gold in the men’s double scull. The duo have not been rowing together for very long, but were two seconds faster than Switzerland after a strong race.

Martine Veldhuis started the beautiful rowing day for the Netherlands with the title in the light women’s skiff, a non-Olympic event.

Roos de Jong and Lisa Scheenaard took silver behind Romania in the women’s doubles sculls and bronze for both Dutch eights.
