Hockey a few seconds ago


The Netherlands gives up a 2-0 lead against Great Britain and draws 2-2.

There are also bright spots for national coach Max Caldas: Thierry Brinkman makes a nice first goal and Jip Janssen scores for the first time from a penalty corner.

60' Pole!

Jip Janssen hits the post and in the rebound the Netherlands seems to have to get a penalty corner.

However, the referee does not want that anymore and so it seems that the Netherlands and Great Britain are going to divide the points.

Hockey a few seconds ago

31' GOAL Netherlands!


The first goal from a penalty corner is a fact: penalty corner specialist Jip Janssen hits.

Judo a few seconds ago

No, there is the third penalty for Steenhuis!

It was little about techniques and therefore it had little to do with judo.

Still, that's a way to win and that's why Hyunji Yoon goes to the semifinals.

Guusje Steenhuis has to go to the rematch, which starts at 10:00.

Judo a few seconds ago

Golden score -

 The South Korean coach wants a third penalty for Steenhuis, but the referee does not want it.

So we are going to lengthen and every technique is now decisive.

Judo a few seconds ago

With about one and a half minutes left on the clock, Steenhuis receives her second penalty for passivity.

She has to act now, because with three penalties Steenhuis has a problem.

Judo a few seconds ago

We're going to judo for the last time tonight.

Guusje Steenhuis will face South Korean Hyunji Yoon in the quarterfinals.

If she wins, she will play in the semi-finals after 10 a.m. (Dutch time).

In the event of a defeat, she also comes into action after 10:00, but in the repechage.

Thanks to a goal by Thierry Brinkman, Max Caldas's team is looking for the dressing rooms with a 1-0 lead.

The Dutch team does not dominate, but plays a decent game.

Hockey 7 minutes ago

28 'A striking moment in which goalkeeper Pirmin Blaak calls his captain Billy Bakker to order.

The goalkeeper is of the opinion that the midfielder let his opponent go too easily, but Bakker does not seem to be interested in comment.

Hockey 15 minutes ago

22 'GOAL Netherlands!


Jonas de Geus stops the ball wonderfully after a high scoop, after which he combines smoothly with Mirco Pruyser.

    Hockey 1 hour ago

    At 5.15 am, the Dutch men will start their fourth group match.

    Max Caldas's team is well on its way to the quarter-finals, but the game is still quite disappointing.

    With Great Britain, an opponent of a reasonable level awaits after duels with South Africa and Canada.

    Judo 1 hour ago

    There is also judo again, but it is still a while to wait for the first Dutch.

    In the under 78 kilogram class, Guusje Steenhuis will compete against Anastasiya Turchyn in the last sixteen.

    This time Niek Kimmann takes first place in heat 2, Twan van Gendt second.

    In Heat 3, Joris Harmsen is second for the second time in a row.

    It can hardly go wrong in the third run.
