Bart Bennema is no longer working as national coach of the Dutch athletes in the short sprint and the hurdles. Technical director Ad Roskam confirms this to NU.nl after reporting from The Telegraph.

The athletes in the disciplines 100 and 200 meters and the 100 and 110 meters hurdles will be merged into one group from the new athletics season. These include Nadine Visser, Taymir Burnet and Churandy Martina.

The Swiss coach Laurent Meuwly is in charge of this selection, which also includes the Dutch stars Femke Bol and Lieke Klaver. In addition to Bram Peters and Rogier Ummels, Meuwly will be assisted by Brendan Troost.

“We were not completely happy with the development of the sprint relays,” Roskam explains the change two years before the start of the Olympic Games in Paris. “As a technical staff, we started looking at how we can make the disciplines swing more.”

Nadine Visser announced her departure from Bart Bennema two weeks ago.

Roskam: ‘Bennema was disappointed’

According to Roskam, the European Athletics Championships were not the direct reason for the intervention. Bol was the big star of the tournament in Munich last month with a historic trilogy, but the Dutch athletes disappointed in the short sprint numbers.

Visser missed a medal in the 100 meters hurdles and Burnet did not even make the final of the 200 meters. The relay runners in the 100 meters, for both men and women, also stayed off the podium.

Visser announced two weeks ago that she would break off the collaboration with Bennema, because she wanted “something different”. She is still looking for a new coach. For Bennema it was already the second topper in a year to leave under his rule: two-time world champion Dafne Schippers put an end to the renewed collaboration in October last year. Wigert Thunnissen is now Schippers’ coach.

Roskam says that Bennema has heard of his departure as a sprint and hurdles national coach with “double feelings”. “On the one hand, he was disappointed. It is difficult for him to let go of something like that. But Bart is also a type, maybe it opens doors for me. He can reflect on what he is going to do.”

The Athletics Union is still looking for a role for Bennema within the organization. “This decision has nothing to do with his performance per se,” Roskam said. “Bart is a hugely successful coach. But we are responsible for the total program. This should ensure an improvement for the athletes.”
