We are the champion

Today Sven Kramer and Ireen Wüst - both from the Netherlands and only 20 years old - became World Champion 2007 in Heerenveen (NL) at the World Allround (Speed Skating) Championships 2007. What an achievement!! Sven even skated a world record (12.49.88) at the 10K. I always enjoy watching speed skating. It is a great sport. The crowd in Thialf went crazy, and I love to watch all the orange.

Hahahaha, you also watched the game!!! It was so exciting....and I always get goosebumps when the national song (how do you call that in English?) is played. With the whole crowd singing and stuff. It was really great.
