Antoinette de Jong gave the first blow at the European Championship allround in Collalbo on Friday. The Friezin convincingly won the 500 meters on the Italian outdoor course.

De Jong remained with a time of 39.19 seconds the Russin Elizaveta Kazelina (second in 39.26) and the Italian Francesca Lollobrigida (third in 39.56).

Defending champion Ireen Wüst must immediately be in the pursuit. The Brabantse gave as number four more than half a second on De Jong (39,72).

The Czech five-time champion Martina Sablikova and the third Dutch participant Carlijn Achtereekte disappointed with the eleventh (40.95) and tenth place (40.91) and now seem no chance to win the final victory.
