Verschuren in extase na goud

Sebastiaan Verschuren heeft op de EK in Londen goud veroverd op de 200 meter vrije slag. De Amsterdamse zwemmer tikte aan na 1.46,02 en troefde daarmee de Serviër Velimir Stjepanovic net af. Het brons was voor de Brit James Guy. ,,Ik wist dat het in me zat en dat ik kon winnen'', zei de Europees kampioen in een eerste reactie. Verschuren was al zeker van deelname aan de Olympische Spelen in Rio.
