And so, the first competition that took place on Sunday, April 14 is over. With a lot of wind but luckily also the sun, both teams performed well.
At 11:30 am the first points were won for the men on swinging shot by Alex, who threw a distance of 23.70 meters. Joris also delivered nice throws for the same part. Ted and Eric were the first to try out the headwind on the 110 meters. Both men went well. The 800 meter men Laurens and Thijs both fought. Thijs managed to take third place in his series and finished in 2: 02.56, and Laurens finished fifth in the same series. Then Wouter and Christopher stood at the start of the 100 meters. Christopher managed to win the win on this part in a time of 11.42 seconds. In the meantime Martijn also jumped high and a nice 5.98 meter jumped when he jumped through Skip. The afternoon was approaching and the weather was getting a lot better. The 5km men were at the start, Thijmen and Federico finished one after the other in 16.21.39 and 16: 40.46 minutes. In the 200 meters Christopher managed to get high again with a strong time of 22.37. Wouter also ran a good 200 meters in the same series. Over to the 400 meters that was run fast by the men Skip and Stefan. Skip became second in his series with 53.50s and Stefan sixth in a time of 51.50s. Meanwhile, Alex and Ted were hit hard in the middle area. Finally, the Swedish relay was on the program, Stefan, Eric, Christopher and Wouter became second in this section in a top time of 2.02.40 which is no less than 4 hundredths above the club record. The Vitalis men have delivered great performances and are currently 24th nationwide!
For the women, Anouk already started shot put and shot the bullet just before the 7 meter, 6.94. The ladies Femke and Michela were together in the fastest 100m hurdles series. After this good race of both ladies, Femke had to go very fast to her next part, high jump, where she jumped the 1.45 level. After the hurdles, the 800 meters were run by Silke and Ineke. Both ladies were in the fastest series and it was a great race to see. Silke had a great final sprint at the end and as a result won her series and had the fastest time of 2.19.29. Not far behind, Ineke finished fourth in a time of 2.21.68. Then it was the turn for the sprint ladies. Noa and Anniek took third and fifth place in their 100-meter series. In the meantime Anja jumped a nice 9.34m with a jump. Then it was the turn of the 400 ladies. Ilona and Isabel both went very well. Ilona finished in a time of 1: 1.95 and Isabel in 1:04:52. After this Anja and Ineke threw another disc and Femke hit a bullet that landed at 8.92 meters. In group two of the hop-and-jump jump, Noa limped a distance of 10.39 and Lianne won more than 3 km in a good time of 9: 52.98. At the 200m it was just as exciting, Anniek was too enthusiastic and got a DQ due to a false start. Michela in the same series was nicely fifth in a time of 28: 00s. And the Swedish relay race for the ladies. Ilona, Anja, Anniek and Noa, just like the men, were able to walk the second time. With a tenth place nationwide, the ladies can look back well on the first competition!
