Olympic medalist Theo Bos ends career and becomes coach in China | cycling

“This is not yet a goodbye for us, because we are happy that he is still active behind the scenes,” says Geert Broekhuizen, team manager at BEAT. “We also wish him every success in China with his new role as coach.” Bos took the initiative to set up BEAT in 2017.

The cyclist from Hierden came into action for the last time this month in the NK team sprint. Bos became world champion on track a total of five times: in 2004 in Melbourne in the sprint, in 2005 in Los Angeles in the 1 kilometer time trial, in 2006 in Bordeaux in the keirin and sprint and in 2007 in Mallorca in the sprint. In addition to his five world titles, Bos took a silver medal in the sprint at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

As a road cyclist, Bos, the younger brother of former speed skater Jan Bos, recorded 37 professional victories. He played for Rabobank and successor Belkin Pro Cycling, among others.
