I am officially qualified to go to the European all-round championship in Budapest. With only 2 start positions at the Europeans, I had to make sure I came in top 2 at the Belgium all-round championship. It all came down to the last race. Going in the 5k, I was still in third place overall and had to close a gap of 7s on the number 2 Wannes Van Praet. I skated a good 5k with a steady pace and accelerated towards the end and ended with enough difference to take the 2nd place overall. The podium this weekend was 1st Bart Swings 2nd Ferre Spruyt 3rd Wannes Van Praet. In the women division Nele Armée won every distance, so she will be joining Bart and me in Budapest.
