Dafne Schippers has won her 6th national title in the 100 meters. The 29-year-old athlete from Utrecht won the final at the National Championships in Breda in a time of 11.20.
Marije van Hunenstijn finished 2nd in 11.28 and thus earned the silver. Jamile Samuel took the bronze in 11.34.
Far removed from form of the past
For several years now, the 2-time world champion in the 200 meters has not come close to the top times with which she surprised the world in 2015: 10.81 in the 100 meters and 21.63 in the 200 meters. Also this summer she remains far from those highlights. Her best times are 11.15 in the 100 meters and 22.91 in the 200 meters.
In Breda, Schippers ran reasonably relaxed 11.29 in the series. Samuel recorded the same time. In the final, the Utrecht girl showed her class again. In the pouring rain she made the difference in the last meters.
