Femke Bol extends her European title in the 400 meters hurdles

Cathelijn Peeters further extended the Dutch success by winning the bronze medal in a time of 54.37. France’s Louise Maraval placed second with a time of 54.23.

It is Bol’s fifth medal in a European Championship. The Amersfoort native wrote athletics history at the European Championships in Munich two years ago when she was the first woman to win gold in both the 400 meters and the 400 meters hurdles. She even won a third gold medal with the team in the 4×400 meter relay.

In Rome she skipped the 400 meters, because the Amersfoort native wanted to focus on the 400 meters hurdles, a discipline in which she became world champion in Budapest last year and is now seeking gold at the Paris Olympics.

Bol won a bronze medal Friday in Rome with the 4×400-meter mixed relay team. She will participate in the 4×400 meters final on Wednesday.

The setting of the European Athletics Championships is reminiscent of Mussolini, but Femke Bol does not let herself be distracted by a loaded story. “This is a very good track, with those very wide corners.”
