Sanne Wevers won silver on the beam at the European gymnastics championships in Basel on Sunday.
Her twin sister Lieke Wevers failed to get a medal.
The 29-year-old Sanne Wevers was the first of all finalists to play and recorded a nice score of 13.866, which she did better than in the qualifications (13.466).
However, it was not enough for the gold, as the Frenchwoman Mélanie Johanna de Jesus dos Santos took the gold with a score of 13,900 thanks to a daring dismount.
It is the second time that Wevers has won a European Championship medal, after the reigning Olympic champion crowned himself European champion in 2018 in Glasgow.
Her sister Lieke ended up next to the bar during her exercise and was able to forget a medal.
She recorded a score of 12,300 and finished second to last.
Sanne and Lieke Wevers have never been together in the bar final at a European Championship.
Romanian Larisa Iordache qualified with the highest score for the final battle, but she then had to be hospitalized with a kidney infection and signed up for the final.
With her silver medal in Basel, Sanne Wevers managed to pick up medals again after a turbulent period.
Dutch gymnastics is in crisis since ex-gymnasts and former coach Gerrit Beltman opened a booklet in the summer of 2020 about mental and sometimes physical abuse by coaches.
Vincent Wevers, the father of Sanne and Lieke Wevers, is one of the coaches whose past behavior is being investigated by the Institute for Sports Justice.
He was allowed to coach his daughters at the European Championship, but he will not be allowed to go to the Olympic Games in Tokyo next summer.
