Other informationPREFERRED DISTANCE
He believes the 1500m is his best event. "If you can beat everyone at your favourite distance, that is the best thing there is. You have two types of 1500m skaters - the skaters from the all-round branch such as Sven Kramer and Patrick Roest, and skaters from the sprint branch such as Kjeld Nuis and Thomas Krol who go full throttle. To what kind do I belong? I am a bit in between." (schaatsen.nl, 24 Jan 2019)
