Femke Heemskerk has concluded her swimming career with a victory.

The 34-year-old Dutchman won the final of the International Swimming League (ISL) on Saturday in the Pieter van den Hoogenband Swimming Stadium in Eindhoven with her team Energy Standard.

After the award ceremony, Heemskerk jumped into the swimming pool one more time to the applause of those present.

She will go down in the books as one of the best Dutch swimmers ever.

Heemskerk won gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with the relay team in the 4x100-meter freestyle.

Four years later in London she took silver with the Dutch team.

In those years, Heemskerk formed the 'Golden Girls' with Ranomi Kromowidjojo, Inge Dekker and Marleen Veldhuis.

The Dutch quartet dominated the 4x100 free for years.

Last summer in Tokyo, Heemskerk reached an individual final at the Olympic Games in the 100-meter freestyle for the first time in her career.

She was also close to a podium spot, but came in sixth in the final.
