Athletics in 4 days

Qualifications in the 400 meters are divided over six heats.

The top three of each heat will automatically advance to the semi-finals and the six fastest remaining athletes will also gain entry to the semi-final.

De Witte starts in heat 2, Klaver in the sixth and final heat.

The first Dutch athletes to take action today are Lieke Klaver and Lisanne de Witte.
