Olympics day 6, Silver and Bronze

18 02 2010

Today was a much better day for team Holland. At the 100m ladies there was silver and bronze. Unfortunately it was not live on TV so I was biting my nails seeing the lap times on the internet. Winner was a deserved Christine Nesbitt from Canada, she was the best for most of the season also today. The difference with number 2 Annette Gerritsen was only 0.02 though, so we almost had gold. Gerritsen took revenge for the unlucky fall on the 500m that probably cost her a medal. The surprising number 3 was Laurine van Riessen, right before Canada’s Kristina Groves. Margot Boer looked to win the whole thing after having a great 600 meter time but had to pay for her quick start in the end. Ireen Wust started badly and ended in 8th place, with the best last round though so good for the upcoming 1500m. Skate speed Anni Friesinger Postma, German married to a Dutch guy and winner on many olympic gold and world championships medals strongly disappointed in 14th place
