The Dutch Nationals took place over the weekend in Amsterdam. Tim Reuser and Kim van den Hout took the gold followed by Elko Schellingerhout, Tiba Vroom, Don van Laere and Julia Meijer.

Two of the best-known climbers in The Netherlands, Jorg Verhoeven and Vera Zijlstra didn’t take part (Verhoeven was in Switzerland competing in a Lead World Cup, Zijlstra is recovering from a serious injury she sustained in February).

On the other hand, Wouter Jongeneelen, 39 years old, who has been national coach and competed internationally until 2013, not only competed but made finals and ended up in 4th place.
