Van Vleuten after gold: 'Story is complete'

Annemiek van Vleuten is overjoyed after her golden race in the time trial.

She was already close in 2016 in the road race, but then fell and she painfully missed the gold three days ago in the road race due to a miscommunication.

"It all had to be like this," she says in a first response to the



"The whole story is complete, so beautiful."

     Marlen Reusser comes in at 31.09.96 taking over second place from Grace Brown.

    That is the time that Anna van der Breggen should look at.

    Chloe Dygert will not participate for the medals, because Van der Breggen already has the American in sight.

    Cycling 34 minutes ago

    She won't want to celebrate too soon, but it can hardly go wrong for Annemiek van Vleuten.

    She is way too strong for the competition.

    Cycling 35 minutes ago


    Grace Brown has slumped quite a bit in the latter part of her ride, coming in at 3.22.22.

    Can van der Breggen dive under that?

    Also Marlen Reusser, Lisa Brennauer and Chloe Dygert have yet to come in.

    Cycling 36 minutes ago

    The current top five, while there are still four riders to come in:

  • Van Vleuten

    - 30.13.49

  • Moolman-Pasio -


  • Labous -


  • Longo Borghini -


  • Cycling 38 minutes ago


    That is the time of Annemiek van Vleuten!

    She is by far the fastest on the line.

    Cycling 39 minutes ago

    Van der Breggen also virtually takes the bronze at the second measuring point.

    Can she still rise to second place in the last part?

    • 1. Van Vleuten -


    • 2. Brown -

    At the second measuring point (after 15 kilometers) Van Vleuten is by far the fastest!

    Phew, Chloé Dygert is having a hard time and passes the first measuring point after 15.16.40.

    Van Vleuten is clearly the fastest there with 14.24.58.

    Van der Breggen clocked 14.42.53 and has to tolerate the Australian Grace Brown.

    Judo 1 hour ago

    Van 't End starts with a simple victory

    Judoka Noël van 't End has started his hunt for a medal with a simple victory.

    In his first match in the class up to 90 kilograms, he gave Paolo Persoglia from San Marino no chance.

    The match lasted only 36 seconds.

    Two years ago, Van 't End became world champion in Tokyo.

    Like the Olympic Games, the World Cup was held in the Budokan judo temple.

    In the road race it was largely the Dutch women who ruined it, but today they can take revenge on their own.
