The Netherlands ended the joint European Championships for athletics, swimming, cycling, gymnastics, golf, rowing and triathlon in Berlin and Glasgow with 43 medals - 15 gold, 15 silver and 13 bronze. With that the Dutch athletes won the fourth most medals, after Russia, Great Britain and Italy, NU.nl reports.
Yuri van Gelder's Olympic dream is over. The 33-year-old gymnast was put out of the Olympic team and sent home on Monday after he celebrated his successful qualification for the apparatus finals with an all-night party on Saturday.
Reigning Olympic champion Epke Zonderland won the gold medal at the high bar at the world championships in Antwerp.
In a very exciting final, Zonderland beat his main competitor Fabian Hambüchen from Germany and although his exercise was not perfect he could climb the number one spot at the ceremonies.
After winning the European championship in 2011 and his amazing victory at the Olympics in London last year, it was now time to win the world championship.
