Looking back on an amazing TRR2023

There were 129 participations from 11 countries: Germany, Switzerland, Romania, Finland, Norway, Canada, Sweden, Estonia, Belgium, the Netherlands and even from Iran. On the program we had all kind of competitions:

  • Allround Big
  • Allround Normal
  • Allround Small
  • Sprint
  • And the single distances: 3.000m, 5.000m and 10.000m

During both days there were skated no fewer than 278 season bests and 121 personal bests! So many thanks to the ice masters who made a perfect ice floor for our skaters. All the more so because many world records were also set: 12 distance records and 8 points records.

On Wednesday, the first five IMSSC world records were broken by:

  • Ole Bjørnsmoen Næss (M30): 6.37,01 on 5.000m
  • Robert Wierts (M45): 14.17,87 on 10.000m
  • Martin Hänggi (M55): 6.44,03 on 5.000m
  • John van der Vlugt (M65): 7.41,82 on 5.000m
  • Guylaine Larouche (L65): 8.47,36 on 5.000m

On Thursday, the next seven IMSSC world records were broken by:

  • Martin Hänggi (M55): 1.56,70 on 1.500m
  • Imme Kampen (L40): 8.16,73 on 5.000m
  • Ciska Stark (L60): 18.19,47 on 10.000m
  • Guylaine Larouche (L65): 18.21,04 on 10.000m

  • Martin Hänggi (M55): 13.51,84 on 10.000m

And finally, the next new points world records were set:

  • Ciska Stark (L60): 207.005 on Allround Big
  • Guylaine Larouche (L65): 207.458 on Allround Big
  • Tialda Gerritsma (L55): 213.725 on Allround Big
  • Daniëlle Frijters (L30): 220.865 on Allround Big
  • Ole Bjørnsmoen Næss (M30): 158.809 on Allround Big

  • John van der Vlugt (M65): 183.355 on Allround Big
  • Imme Kampen (L40): 190.431 on Allround Normal
