This weekend i visited the world cup sprint in Heerenveen (speedskating)
For the dutch this is a very popular sport. And speedskating events in Heerenveen are always a big party.
Lots of dutch fans (all dressed up in orange) are encouriging, singing and waving to their heroes...
Beside the dutch skaters there were 2 also very popular people racing: Anni Friesinger (german) and Shani Davis (American) especially Shani has a lot of fans here in Holland.
This is a photo of Erben Wennemars right before the start of the 1000 metres ....in maximun concentration....
Always impressive how a stadium packed with thousands of people can be sooo quiet!
He became second ...0,07 seconds behind Shani Davis.
In the next days i will post some photo's of the dutch crowd ...
