Bart Swings have completely lived up to their status as a top favourite. Our compatriot was crowned European champion for the second time in the group start, the “mini marathon” over sixteen laps. The Swings were ahead of Thialf Livio Wenger and Ruslan Zakharov, which gave an additional confidence boost towards the Winter Games (4-20 February).
With the number 1 on his helmet, the Swings began defending their title. Everyone had to participate in the first round in the wake of the Leuven native (who also leads the World Cup rankings), after which the collective start really took off.
Dutchman Marcel Busker immediately took the lead, commissioned by leader and former world champion Jurit Bergsma. But she was immediately attacked by some hardworking Belarusians. However, the hammocks kept calm in the bundle’s outposts and continued to glide along without falling into the wind. He obviously looked to the Dutch to do the work, which Bergsma soon did.
Everything seemed to be going well for our compatriot so he had to wait for his explosion in the last lap and a half. Although Bergsma gave her a good shot four laps from the end. Hammocks slipped along with the Russian menace Zakharov. Swings swing on the last lap in second and then takes off. Like a guilty one, he once again rushed to the European title. The rest was not actually in the picture.

Although the bell caused some criticism in Thialf. Because he didn’t beat when the last round started… Swings was happy to be on the lookout.
Then he said, “I heard the bell.” “I also think everyone knew it was the last round. I always look at the board with the number of laps on it. There was some mess with double drivers. Hence maybe the confusion.”
