The horse show NIC Assen is held for the 59th time this year. The chariot race is one of the highlights of the five-day event. The list of participants is included the gold country team of the World Equestrian Games in Caen, consisting of Chardon, Koos de Ronde and Theo Timmerman.
Last week we spent with three American basketball players of Aris Leeuwarden visiting the clog. Miles Jackson-Cartwright, Ryan Watkins and Marquise Simmons obviously got himself some nice Aris-klomen gift and were very happy about that! This week we bring the three Americans to visit the cheese farm in Rijperkerk.
In 2012 marathon skater Karlo Timmerman stopped from Groningen quite suddenly with skates. But blood is thicker than water can not flow and thus makes the 27-year-old skater his comeback this season. Carpenter would qualify over three years for the Olympics in 2018, and therefore focuses in the coming years on the long track and the mass start.
