Over 240 Dutch athletes head for Beijing

The Netherlands is poised to send a record number of athletes to the Beijing Olympics, the Telegraaf reports on Tuesday.

The placing of the 4×100 metres relay team means more than 240 athletes will be heading for China. The definitive number will be published on July 31.
The previous record dates from the 1996 Atlanta games, when 239 Dutch athletes took part.
