Much was expected of the Dutch rowing team in Tokyo. On the Sea Forest Waterway It had to happen and Holland did not disappoint. My men’s doubles doubles turned out to be his favorite and won the gold, despite a serious misstep at the start of the race.
In addition, there were bronze in the women’s double rowing boats, silver in the men’s double rowing boats, and four women without a pair.

Soon after these first successes, the Van Vleuten anime continued in the right direction. The 38-year-old cyclist crushed her opponent in a time trial, thus avenging the failed road race. Anna van der Bregenn took the bronze.
Expectations were slightly lower among the men, but Tom Dumoulin was pleasantly surprised with a silver medal. Primoz Roglic was the only one who was faster than Dumoulin, who also indicated that he would definitely continue as a professional cyclist.
In the morning hours, the Judo Championships for women up to 70 kg and for men up to 90 kg began. Sanne van Dijke did an excellent job, but lost in the semi-finals. In the rematch, Van Dyck managed to get a bronze medal. Unfortunately for Noël van ‘t End, the medal was too ambitious. He lost in the quarterfinals and couldn’t break any bets in the replay either.
There were a lot of Dutch athletes who participated in matches without any medals attached to them. Nouchka Fontijn qualified for the middleweight boxing quarterfinals and Kieran Badloe regained the lead in windsurfing. Badminton player Mark Calgo secured a place in the Round of 16 with his victory today. Moreover, women’s hockey beat South Africa 5-0 and women’s water polo beat Spain 14-13.

Many Dutch swimmers are in the business today. Arno Kamenga qualified for the 200-meter breaststroke final, and Fimki Heemskerk easily swam to a place in the 100-meter freestyle semi-finals. Ranumi Kromoidjogo withdrew from swimming this distance. Kromowidjojo mainly focus on 50 meters freestyle games.
Of course there was also less performance by the Dutch today. Swimmer Arjan Knipping was eliminated from the series in the 200-meter medley and bowlers Sep van den Berg and Gijs Broeksma took down early in the singles championship. Also in equestrian sports, the Netherlands could not interfere in the fight for medals. Edward Gall and Hans-Peter Minderhude finished sixth and twelfth in the dressage Grand Prix.
The Netherlands, of course, is not the only country to have a successful day at the Olympic Games today. Fiji extended its gold medal in rugby and Latvia won the gold in men’s 3×3 basketball. In the women’s race, the United States won its first Olympic title.
