    Nils has just announced that he is planning to jog all the way from Stockholm to Beijing in 2022 right before the Olympics. That's around 7000 km. And he is dead serious about it

    Nils' sister Hanna made an Instagram post a few days ago announcing that their mother passed away a month ago from cancer. Deepest condolences to the van der Poel family and everyone who was close to her.

    Not sure if it's relevant to anyone but Nils has given up on social media isolation and finally made an Instagram profile (giving me a single reason not to delete my own page lol): https://www.instagram.com/nils.vanderpoel/

    This may be very interesting for some Nils stans and skating technicality fanatics like me out there: here's a YouTube channel called Speedskating Deconstructed managed by a speed skating coach that has recently made a video deconstructing Nils' 10k (allround) race and explaining his technique on the straights in detail. Super interesting to watch.

    Note how Nils distributes his bodyweight and balances it against his motion, also the way he pushes into the ice while combining it with the great amplitude.

    And yet another video explaining his curve technique.

    He definitely gives good info and it's a great concept but why doesn't he record his screen properly

    Graeme Fish finally revealed that Nils actually texted him before his WR race in February and told him that he was going to do it (break his WR).

    Nils' comments, eccentric yet respectful as ever :D
