Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bart Veldkamp is a retired speed skater, who represented both the Netherlands and Belgium in international competitions, including the Winter Olympics. In 1990, Bart Veldkamp won the European Allround Championships and came very close to repeating that feat 11 years later in 2001, finishing 2nd. At the 1992 Winter Olympics, he won a gold medal on the 10,000 m. Mainly due to this achievement, Veldkamp was named Dutch Sportsman of the Year in 1992. Before the 1994 Winter Olympics, he was so dissatisfied with the way to qualify for tournaments that he became a Belgian. In Belgium there was no speed skating tradition, so qualifying for tournaments became no issue because there were no other speed skaters to compete with.show more
