Sophie Houer finished second in the third quarter final in the individual rowing race on Sunday. This will allow her to prepare for the semi-finals.
The women’s double rowing boats also go another round. After winning the series, Roos de Jong and Lisa Scheenaard will play in the final on Wednesday from 2.18pm. The men also go unharmed towards the final battle. Melvin Tueller and Steve Bruinck had the fastest time in the semi-finals.
Tokyo 2020 | Day 1 medals at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

It was an exciting day for the four men. After a disappointing qualifier, they had to reclaim the Sea Forest Waterway. On this new day they had things in order. Romania crossed the line first, the Dutch gentlemen followed.
Kiran Badloe finished third in the RS:X class after day one. The sailboat is somewhat heavier than its direct competitors, and therefore benefits from strong winds. However, during the first two races, circumstances were not in his favour. Badloe had to settle for fifth and seventh. Fortunately for the three-time world champion, the wind rose afterwards and took the third race victory. The fourth, fifth and sixth races are scheduled for Monday.
Among the women, Lilian de Geus finished sixth in the RS:X class after day one. The world champion made a slow start in eighth and eleventh places, but won the third race.
In the women’s beam laser class, reigning Olympic champion Marit Baumeister was not yet on track for a medal. The Dutch sailor finished twenty-first and fourteenth. The third and fourth races are scheduled for Monday.
Dutch women’s handball started the Olympics convincingly. National coach Emmanuel Mayonadi’s team beat hosts Japan 32-21 in the opening match. The return to the Nycke Groot team was special. She returned to Orange after two years.

The Netherlands narrowly missed a medal in the 4x100m freestyle. Fimki Heemskerk, Ranomy Kromwidjogo, Kim Bosch and Kyra Toussaint finished fourth in the final. The quad was short 0.89 seconds for bronze. Gold went to Australia, Canada and the United States.
Arno Kamenga qualified for the 100m breaststroke final without any problems. Just like Saturday in the series, the medal candidate selected the second time of the day. With 58.19 it was slightly faster than it was in the series (57.80). Top candidate Adam Petty scored the fastest time of the day in the other semi-final: 57.63. Final on Monday from 4.12 am.
Kyra Toussaint and Mikey De Ward qualified for the semi-finals of the 100m backstroke on Sunday afternoon. Toussaint set the seventh hour of the day at 59.21. De Waard is fifteenth with 1.00.03. The semi-finals are scheduled for Monday. Tess Scotten narrowly missed a place in the semi-finals in the 100m breaststroke. The twenty-year-old swimmer scored the eighteenth hour of the day. The top sixteen qualified.
Enrico Lacruz did not reach the second round of the boxing championship. American Keyshawn Davis (medal contender) won the competition on points in three rounds.
Martina Wegman qualified for the semi-finals of the rowing slalom without any issues. In the two rounds, she scored 113.29 and 109.84. This was more than enough to get back to work. Both the semi-finals and final are scheduled for Tuesday.
Bass Verleken was stranded on Sunday in the third round of the Fencing Championships. He lost number seven in the ranking list 15-11 to Frenchman Romain Cannon. The Dutch swordsman was very disappointed after that. He claimed that he hit the opponent, but the light did not turn on. However, running the race was inevitable.
Badminton players Selena Beck and Robintabling have to fear elimination in mixed doubles. The Dutch duo lost to Chinese world champions Zheng Siwei and Huang Yaqiong on Sunday: 21-15, 20-22. On Saturday, Baek Andtabling also fell against South Koreans Seo Seung Jae and Chae Yu-hong. On Monday, they close the group stage in front of Adham Hatem El-Gamal and Donna Hany from Egypt.
Sani Weavers suddenly missed the Olympic beam final. The current champion achieved a score of 13,866 in the playoffs. That wasn’t enough for a place in the top eight.
Itora Thorsdottir (52,899) and Lake Weavers (53,365) appear to have made the final all over. They still depended on the performance of other gymnasts later in the day. Since no country is allowed to send more than one gymnast per part, Vera van Pol is eliminated with 51.733.
The Netherlands eventually achieved a total of 160,263 points in the Nations Cup. With one division to go, the gymnasts were ninth. Not enough to get a place in the final.
Expectations for the women’s road race were high. The Netherlands had four contenders for the win with Demi Follering, Animek van Vleuten, Marianne Voss and Anna van der Bregen, but they all got it wrong. Anna Kissenhofer remained Austrian before the early separation. The Dutch knights were not aware of this. Van Vleuten crossed the cheer line in second place. Painful moment. It means the second silver medal for the Netherlands.
The Dutch 3×3 basketball players scored their second victory in three games on Sunday. Japan defeated the host country 21-20 after a terrible battle. Arvid Slagter succeeded in the decisive run from a free throw. A confrontation with China will follow later today.
