Hassan and Bol feature on Dutch team for WCH Budapest 23

Double Olympic champion Sifan Hassan and triple European champion Femke Bol will represent the Netherlands in multiple disciplines at the World Athletics Championships Budapest 23.

Hassan has been entered in the 1500m, 5000m and 10,000m – the same three disciplines she contested at the Tokyo Olympic Games, where she landed two gold medals and a bronze.

Bol, meanwhile, will have her sights set on gold in the 400m hurdles, having recently reduced her own European record to 51.45. As was the case at the past two global championships, she is also in the pools for the women’s and mixed 4x400m events.
