Swimmers are able to chase World Championships qualifying times at this Open Championships meet, as well as the Sette Colli Trophy, with the final list of Dutch swimmers selected for Gwangju revealed later this month.

Among the swimmers slated to race in Amersfoort this weekend include Thom de Boer, Don Dreesons, Maarten Brzoskowski, Joeri Verlinden, Tamara van Vliet, Valerie van Roon and Elinore de Jong.
