Dutch European Jr Champion Steenbergen Opts Out Of World Championships

Following a successful European Junior Championships campaign, Dutch teenager Marrit Steenbergen has withdrawn herself from the Netherlands’ World Championships roster. Originally lined-up to swim the 200m freestyle individually and as a part of the women’s 4x200m freestyle relay, the 17-year-old will be ‘taking a rest after the successful EJC in Netanya’, according to the Royal Dutch Swimming Federation (KNZB).

While competing in Israel at the EJC competition, Steenbergen raced her way to an individual gold medal in the 100m freestyle, clocking a time of 54.13. She also won the women’s 200m IM event in a time of 2:13.69, while scoring silver as a member of the 4x100m freestyle relay, firing off a speedy anchor leg of 53.37.

From the KNZB website, it appears that Robin Neumann will be racing the women’s 200m freestyle now in addition to Femke Heemskerk.

Below is the revised list of Dutch swimmers with their associated events scheduled out for Budapest, as it appears on the KNZB site.

Will she go to World Junior Swimming Champs?

Mark

The Netherlands, as in the past years, won’t send a team to the World junior champs. Mainly because of financial decisions that need to be made. They stick to the European tournaments in these age categories. If anyone is good enough, young talents have the chance to swim a sort of debutant limit for a senior tournament. If they make it and there aren’t two senior swimmer that make the senior time, the young talents can go to a senior tournament.
