  • Schippers coach stunned by record time in Beijing

    When Dutchwoman Dafne Schippers smashed a 36-year-old European record to capture the women's world 200 metres gold, there was no one more shocked than her coach Bart Bennema. Bennema has overseen Schippers' training for the last seven years, taking charge when she was a raw 16-year-old, but even he was staggered after watching his protégé run 21.63 seconds -- the fourth fastest time ever -- just days after her silver in the 100m. It was a remarkable run by Schippers, 23, who eclipsed the European record of 21.71 set by Marita Koch in 1979 and matched by fellow East German Heike Drechsler in 1986.
