Emotionele broederstrijd bij de Alternatieve Elfstedentocht

Op de vraag of ze niet liever ploeggenoten willen zijn, reageren de broer resoluut. “Nee, absoluut niet”, zegt Erwin, terwijl ook Niels nadrukkelijk met zijn hoofd schudt. “Het wereldje in het schaatsen is al zo ontzettend klein”, zegt Niels. “We wonen met z’n tweeën in Heerenveen en als je dan ook nog bij elkaar in de ploeg zit, doe je álles samen. We verschillen ook nog eens erg van mening in een wedstrijd. Dus het lijkt me geen goed idee om samen te rijden.”

Erwin komt met een voorbeeld. “Niels moet elke kunstijswedstrijd meedoen voor de overwinning, maar voor mij telt eigenlijk alleen natuurijs. Een kunstijswedstrijd is voor mij echt een training.” 

En die Alternatieve Elfstedentocht is heel mooi, maar de grote droom is toch nog altijd de ‘Tocht der Tochten’ in Friesland. Erwin: “Mijn training is er altijd op gericht om een Elfstedentocht te rijden.”

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
