Evert Scheltinga nieuw NL record lange afstand


A dream came true in Almere. I still can’t believe it. 7:49:32 hours, a 4th place at the World Championship, after 22 years a new Dutch national record (proud to follow you up Jan van der Marel!!) and the Dutch national title… Thank you so much for everyone who cheered me across this line ❤️ I needed it! Happy to do this in my home race @challengealmere 🇳🇱 I went all in on the bike, but once on the run I really found my rhythm. Felt like I was flying, although apparently it didn’t look like that, because everyone keeps saying I looked so pale. I think I should change my sunscreen because that’s what made me look like a zombie. But I did eventually feel like a zombie too 😂 It was tough…
I felt quite sick and bad after the finish. Good things don’t come easy. Thanks to everyone who always believed that I would be able to pull this off
