Disappointing race in Athens

August 20th 2004 - The competition was tough, but that was no excuse for a race that didn't turn out the way Kamiel was aiming for. "I felt strong and was able to run smoothly during the first kilometers" Kamiel said, "but after a few faster laps I didn't have the power I needed to really participate in this race". So, despite several training camps, heat-adaptation and pre-cooling methods, Kamiel was not able to run at the level he has shown at previous tournaments and qualified his performance as "disappointing". After long months of preparation, Kamiel will now take a few days off while residing in the Olympic Village. Saturday night he will be in the stadium to cheer for his colleagues participating in the 3.000 m steeple chase and other events.

Results will follow soon.

Het was ook een erg aparte race met heel veel tempowisselingen, dus zo slecht vind ik het nog niet! Succes met je verdere wedstrijden!

Goedenmorgen, Net uit het Holland Heineken House waar de huldiging van de zwemploeg was. Gisteren jou de 10 km zien lopen. Hoewel geen medaille heb ik het super naar m'n zin gehad en hoop dan ook dat je me gezien hebt aan de lange zijde voorbij het 100m punt met m'n vlag. Ben er een beetje schor van geworden maar het was geweldig!! Helaas heb je geen ere ronde gelopen. Wellicht tot in het HHH of ergens anders in Athene. gr. Bjorn ps. de foto's die ik gemaakt heb stuur ik vanuit nederland op.

Ik ben het met Jelle eens dat de warmte van grote invloed is. Als je dan nog binnen de dertig minuten blijft is dat een prestatie van KLASSE! Vanavond moest Paula Radcliffe zelfs uitstappen ondanks alle speciale voorbereiding. Nog veel succes met je verdere aktiviteiten in Athene. Groeten van KLAAS
