Sven Kramer about rickety back during World Cup: ‘One more time at the Olympic Games’


Sven Kramer told this at the table at Humberto Tan:

The 34-year-old Frisian finished in nineteenth place in the 5000 meters (6.35.52) during the World Championship distances in Heerenveen. “I had a really bad day,” said Kramer of the race. “Two minutes before the start it shot in my back.”

‘You have to continue’

Normally the skater feels something like this coming, but this time it came as a ‘total surprise’. While things went very well in the weeks leading up to the World Championship distances, Kramer said.

Kramer hopes to be able to go to the Olympic Games one more time ‘in a dignified way’. That would be in twelve months. “It is difficult to take it,” says Kramer about the back injury.

“But you have to keep going.” He has ‘unshakeable faith’ in qualifying for the Olympics.
