“The Games would be my last tournament,” said rower Mechiel Versluis after the first joint training of the Holland Acht since the corona crisis. The 32-year-old Versluis is sticking to his rowing career for another year due to the relocation of the Olympic Games.

“I was already working on what I was going to do after the Games. So it was mentally quite tough”, Versluis refers to the move of the tournament to 2021. “It was not so obvious to me that I would stick with it for another year would stick. “

Holland Acht back together in the boat: ‘Motivation slowly returns’

This video can only be viewed in the Netherlands.

Versluis had to look for new motivation. “The fact that we can train together again now helps a lot with that.” He was not the only rower of the Holland Acht who struggled to stay motivated during the corona crisis.

The 22-year-old talent Maarten Hurkmans also found it a difficult period. “You live somewhere and make a lot of training hours. If that disappears and there is nothing at all, it is just as difficult.”

“We can get gold”

Mark Emke, head coach of the rowers, does not see the postponement of the Games as a disadvantage for the men’s night. “It is a good, promising boat. Then it is just a little easier to say: than next year.”

Emke also sees that conviction with the rowers. “There is a feeling that we can just win it. And that they have that feeling is also justified.” Hurkmans agrees with the national coach. “We can certainly get gold.”
