First gold medal 2016

The Netherlands got their first gold medal of these Olympic Games at the Cycling Road Race for women. Anna van der Breggen has won the race in a fantastic final last km. Sadly her teammate Annemiek van Vleuten crashed in the last km’s by the descending of the last hill. She’s ok fortunately. Otherwise she would have won the gold medal. But those women are a team so Anna fixed it! The other teammembers are Marianne Vos (previous Olympic Champion of London 2012) and Ellen van Dijk. When maybe later the video of the incredible finish is online, I will write a little blog post about it.

Which sports will you be watching?
