2019 DUTCH SHORT COURSE CHAMPIONSHIPS
The 2019 Dutch Short Course Championships is set to be a veritable ‘who’s who’ of Dutch elite swimming, with the biggest names on both the men’s and women’s sides slated to race in Tilburg this upcoming weekend.
One notable name, however, will indeed be absent, as Olympian Femke Heemskerk will be representing her International Swimming League (ISL) squad, Team Energy Standard, at the finals in Vegas happening the same weekend.
For the Dutch SC Championships, however, fans will still be treated to the likes of the following swimmers, including the recent 2020 Olympic Games qualifiers Ranomi Kromowidjojo and Kira Toussaint. Both raced at the Swim Cup Amsterdam last weekend, where the former logged a Tokyo qualifying effort in the 50m free, while the latter accomplished the same feat in the women’s 100m back.
Arno Kamminga also logged times good enough for Tokyo in the men’s 100m and 200m breaststroke events.
