Senior Results: 1. Adil Fahrouni 2. Edwin Wieringh 3. Dick Heerkens.
Last saturday the first round of the Dutch Championships took place in Rotterdam. Adil Farhouni from Almere won this first round in the senior category.
The winner at the juniors was Tasheed Zaalman from Rotterdam. An overall ranking will determine who will become the new Dutch Champion after two more events, held in the next four weeks.
This Dutch championship consists of three rounds at three different places in the Netherlands. The concept is unique since all the competitors get to skate together for a couple of minutes, which gives them more time to impress the judges.
At the first stop in Rotterdam more than 40 of the best Dutch skaters competed and the concept worked out very well.
The level of the skaters was a lot higher than last year and the number of competitors increased as well. In the final of the first round 10 skaters had to skate together for 15 minutes on a place in the skatepark chosen by themselves.
After these 15 minutes the judges determined the final ranking. Per ranking place the skaters get a certain number of points for the overall ranking.
Tasheed and Adil made a perfect start for the overall ranking, but of course the rest of the top 10 will have a lot of chance on becoming the Dutch Champion as well. There will be two more events to collect points:
– Eindhoven (Area 51 Skatepark) on April 2nd, 2011
– Denbosch (WorldSkateCenter) on April 16th, 2011
