On the eighth day of the World Championships in Doha, the Dutch will only compete in the series of the 4x100 meter relay. Our country is represented by both men and women.
It will be difficult for the women to make it to the final battle of Saturday, because Dafne Schippers is missing due to her groin injury. Schippers may participate in a possible final.
In the absence of the double world champion in the 200 meters, the Dutch team consists of Nargelis Statia Pieter , Marije van Hunenstijn , Jamile Samuel and Naomi Sedney .
The Dutch men are at full strength. Joris van Gool , Taymir Burnet , Hensley Paulina and Churandy Martina form the Dutch team on Friday and Chris Garia is a reserve. For 35-year-old Martina, it will be his eighth participation in a World Cup.
Of the five, only Burnet qualified individually for the World Cup in Doha (100 and 200 meters), but as a team the Dutch are among the best in the world. In July they set the Dutch record to 37.99.
It is an hour later in Doha than in the Netherlands. The Dutch times are shown in this program.
