I am looking forward to race this upcoming Sunday at the FBK-Games in Hengelo
On the 24th of May the annual Fanny Blankers Koen Games will be held in Hengelo. I am very excited to race there. It's alway nice to race in Hengelo, because you know that almost everybody in the stadium is rooting for you. Everyone is hoping that I will run very fast and win the race, that is a very nice feeling.
The FBK-Games are very special to me. I was the first person ever to run the 100 meters under ten seconds on Dutch soil and I did that on the track at Hengelo. This year I want to become the first person ever to run the 200 meters under 20 seconds on my home ground and I think Hengelo will be the perfect spot to pull this off.
The FBK-Games are an established global event and at the same time a local one. It's always nice to see Dutch fellow athletes compete in big tournaments and to see them do that in the presence of their family and friends is something special.
I did this great promo video for the FBK-Games with fellow athletes Dafne Schipper and Nadine Broersen. I hope to see you all this Sunday at the FBK-Games in Hengelo.
