Reaching the final was an almost impossible task for the Dutchman. In the series he ran the 23rd time and in the field of top sprinters in the United States and Canada, among others, Burnet was covered in snow. In the series, he clocked a season best time of 20.60. He did not reach the final.
“My body said no tonight. I had a little cramp here and there and couldn’t maintain my speed in the straight line, “said Burnet after his run.” I was back in lane 2. When I heard that before the race I was pretty cranky. I don’t like that tight turn so I have to work too hard. “
Burnet was nevertheless quite satisfied. “I haven’t had a good preparation this season with injuries and a collision in training. As a result, I suffered a knee injury and did a lot of physiotherapy in the past two weeks. Despite this, I still qualify for the semi-finals of the Olympic Games. Now I will prepare for the relay. So I can still take revenge.
